Re: Weight loss anyone after Hysterectomy???

I was told NOT to weigh for a while after the surgery! They will pump you full of IV fluids and it will take a little while for that to come off!

Re: Weight loss anyone after Hysterectomy???

I've lost 5lbs...suprising with being so inactive. I've noticed I'm craving salads, fresh fruits, seafood. Figure my body is wanting certain things, and with all the fresh spring ingredients available, I'm listening! I'm 5'7, size 12 and very happy with my body. Now get the swelly belly down and I'll feel back to normal!

Re: Weight loss anyone after Hysterectomy???

I had great success with the "HCG Diet" back in November and I'm 9 days post-op. One question I plan to ask at my follow-up appt on Thursday is if/when I can resume the HCG - since it does contain hormones, I'm not sure if it will effect me or not. I've still got my ovaries, even though they are asleep or shocked or just ignoring me right now! Anyone else do the HCG Diet?

Re: Weight loss anyone after Hysterectomy???

I lost a total of 20 pounds since I took the Lupron Shot (12/14/11) to prepare for surgery. This could be because I was advised to eat 6 smaller (super healthy) meals to help with the Lupron side effects (which were so bad). I also increased my water intake. My surgery was on 2/17/12 and I probably lost about 5-7 more pounds after surgery.

Re: Weight loss anyone after Hysterectomy???

I've lost about 15lbs since my surgery on 1/9. I'm very pleased. I think it may be due to the fact that I am not bleeding any more. I was anemic and kept eating thinking it would give me some energy. I feel I have more energy then I have in years. Good Luck!

Re: Weight loss anyone after Hysterectomy???

I had my TVH on 3/15 and I have already lost 10 pounds! I had a little over two pounds of fibroids taken out, so I actually have lost around 8 lbs. My belly has already gone down! My fibroids were big and plenty!! I don't really crave bad foods, I want good stuff! Gonna take advantage of this as long as I can

Re: Weight loss anyone after Hysterectomy???

I am with all of you...I have lost 35 pounds since my surgery...most of it in the first 5 or 6 months. I went from a size 8 to a size 2!!!

My appetite has changed drastically since the surgery. I no longer have cravings for chocolate and sweets, I want fruit, veggies, and other healthy foods. I also get full very quickly. I take about 6 bites of my meal and I am full to the point of being uncomfortable. I make sure that I eat several small meals during the day and I also drink Ensure shakes (YUCK) to make sure that I am still getting all the nutrients that my body needs.

It is common for weight loss to occur after a hysterectomy, but it doesn't happen for everyone
I hope you are one of the lucky ones as well!!
