Post Menopausal...Will I still have this big stomach?

I'm not obese but I have a big tummy...I'm 64yo and people sometimes ask me if I'm pregnant. I'm having DaVinci LAVH/BSO very soon and I'm wondering what this will be like after I heal. Lots of organs won't be there anymore.

I've heard that women gain weight after hysterectomy but I thought this was if premenopausal at the time of surgery. I have gained some weight in the last 10 yrs... since menopause... and I'd like to lose some.

Re: Post Menopausal...Will I still have this big stomach?

I told hubby just a couple days ago that once I am recovered from this, I'm having some problems right now, and eating and drinking are in no way appealing to me, but I told him I am going to get serious about getting healthier. I am obese, people tell me I don't look it, but I don't know how they can not see it, I see it. And so far this recovery has been harder than the surgery I had a few yrs back when the dr removed my left ovary and tube. I weigh about 30 pounds more now than I did then, and I am thinking the extra weight isn't helping. I too have the 'belly' just like my grandmother had and some of my cousins have. I just want to get healtier after everything I saw while in the hospital!
