Has anyone else lost weight? How much does a uterus weigh?

I went in weighing 120lb, came out of surgery weighing 130lb, I'm 5'8" tall. All that saline in the IV's caused the weight gain, but went back to 120lbs within a week. I'm 13 days post-op and weigh 117lbs now. How much does a uterus usually weigh? I had an enlarged one, maybe it was an extra large.

I know what you mean! I had my TAH (kept ovaries)on 10/23/02 and I lost 10 lbs. I needed to though. Anyway, I'm not sure what it is but I wasn't much into food afterward and I know my uterus was very thick and had one large tumor which weighed almost 1 full lbs and several smaller ones. My stomach went way down which was nice.

You might lose more without even trying, that's what happened to me.

Take care and good luck!

I think I have lost about 15 pounds. Will see tomorrow. My docs office has the cruelest scale on the planet (lol).

My weight loss is definitely due to decreased appetite and an inability to eat much at one time (might ask doc tomorrow if he stapled my stomach while he was in there - that's what it feelsl like - lol)

I lost weight as well. I was 145 and now I am 130lbs. My uterus weighed 6lbs but that is becouse it was 5x it size. A normal uterus weighs only 60-70cc. My uterus was 2000+cc's. You will nedd to check with your doc to see what yours was.

Weight

Hi,

Well add another to the weight loss girls...came home weighing a pound more than when I went in, but expected that and more from the iv's, and have been home one week and have lost almost 6 pounds. Not much of an appetite, and with the bowels not moving sufficiently, where would it go anyway...lol, and also, find that after eating only a few bits, I am pretty full....I kind of like it that way...hope that is one side affect that sticks around for awhile....

I have lost 15 lbs. so far. I don't even want to eat! My theory is what goes in must come out....so I take it real easy! This is hard because I do so love food.

I too have lost some weight since my TAH on 10/15/02--about 10 pounds. In fact, yesterday I was able to put on a pair of jeans that had not seen the light of day for a couple of years. I haven't been making a conscious effort to lose, but have kept up my walking. Also, I was severely anemic prior to surgery and my overall energy level is definitely way up as my iron levels return to normal. The swelly belly is also almost gone. It just pops up when I've been doing too much running around. So for all of you recent post-ops and ladies and waiting there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Just came from the doctor. I'm five days post-op and lost 6 lbs.! Yay! I'm eating pretty well and eliminating well, too. My swelly belly isn't nearly as big as my tummy was before I had surgery but when he told me about all of the problems in there, no wonder I was swollen!
