Losing weight after partial hysterectomy

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after partial hysterectomy


Avatar f tn I didn't have any weight to lose after my hysterectomy; however, it's not any different losing after a hysterectomy than it is any other time. You have to make sure you're eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise (do not exercise until your doctor says it's okay); however, walking is always good.
Avatar m tn Greetings, I don't think you need to worry about pregnancy after a hysterectomy if you indeed had a hysterectomy. You can always request your surgical pathoology report to confirm. Your symptoms may be related to your recent weight gain. I recommend that you follow up with your primary care physician for review and further evaluation for depression and thyroid disease both of which are common with unwanted weight gain. Best wishes!
Avatar f tn My doc has suggested I have a partial hysterectomy (due to heavy periods and fibroids and constant anemia) and now as the date for it is getting closer, I'm getting cold feet. I've been reading on different websites that there's a good chance that even if it's a partial hysterectomy, I will start going through menopause within a couple years. Can anyone who has had one confirm this or share their experience with this?

Avatar f tn If I knew what I know now, I would have not had a hysterectomy due to terrible periods. After exhausting all weight loss solutions, I am going to a Weight loss surgeon to see what I can do. I need professional help. The physician who performed my surgery should had told me these things. I feel stupid and fat for doing this. Even walking one hour and weights 4 days a week does not change anything. DO NOT GET A HYSTERECTOMY unless you have really researched this.
Avatar n tn The way to lose weight after a hysterectomy is the same weight loss concept as any other, and involves losing fat and gaining muscle. Have a medical exam performed by your doctor to rule out any other causes of sudden weight gain, such as a thyroid problem. Make dietary changes to reduce your calorie intake. Do cardiovascular exercises for at least 60 minutes three to four times a week. Do strength training exercises three to four times each week, giving your muscles a day to rest in between.
Avatar f tn I had a partial hysterectomy in January of last year due to ovarian cysts and precancerous cells. I am only 29 so my doctor did not think I would have many issues or need to be on hormone therapy. But since then I have gained close to 30 pounds (I have gone from 130 to 160, all or the weight centralized to my stomach- and my breasts have gone from a c cup to an EEE .... ) despite clean eating and exercising regularly.
Avatar f tn I had partial vaginal hysterectomy 2 months ago. I have since started back on my routine of my walks for 5 miles and see no results. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn I had a partial hysterectomy and have 1 ovary remaing. The weight I've gained is just stupid. I've had 3 kids and never had this weight problem. Does anyone know of anything to take to help with this? A natural remedy to balance everything back out?
Avatar f tn Not that i have heard. a hysterectomy causes early menopause which could give u pregnancy symptoms.
Avatar f tn Is there any difference in how an orgasm feels after having a partial hysterectomy? I have read that some women have clitoral orgasm and some have orgasms from their uterus. Have also read that having a hysterectomy can make a difference in some women. Suggestions?
Avatar f tn I had a partial hysterectomy in Feb. 2011. I still have both ovaries and tubes. The only thing removed was my uterus. I have been experiencing symtoms of pregnancy for the last 3 or so months. I have for the past two weeks been feeling movement that is exactly what I felt when pregnanct with my other three children. One pregnancy test showed positive, but all others are negative. The dr says there is no way possible for this to happen. Please, does anyone have info...
Avatar f tn I mentioned this to a friend, and his wife ended up having a total hysterectomy after the partial, due to complications with the ovaries/cervix. He also claims most of her friends that had this procedure done experienced the same thing. What experiences have you had? please help me. I'd rather do an ablation and have it fail than to do a partial and have it fail.
Avatar n tn The weight gain, the sweet tooth, Im 39 and had a full hysterectomy two years ago. I never had to fight my weight. This is horrible. Very depressing. And then Im taking anti depressants for the depression, which effect the weight. Im a Christian woman, and I know prayer works, and I feel so vain, as I know the out side is not what counts, but its effecting the inside too.
Avatar f tn Although many assume or are led to believe that the ovaries continue functioning normally after a partial hysterectomy, that is not always the case. Once the uterus is removed, there is a risk that the ovaries will produce fewer hormones. It is even possible for them to completely shut down causing a surgical type menopause.
Avatar f tn I had a partial hysterectomy in 09 and I have gained weight and now I'm trying to loose it. I'm having major problems trying to loose it. I'm on hormone medication which is a cream. I have even tried that ambien and nothing. I have been walking on my treadmill but not eveeyday. Please help.
Avatar f tn I had a partial hysterectomy when I was 27. Everything but my left ovary was removed. My right ovary was enlarged and that was where the majority of my pain was coming from at the time. I am 34 now and have been struggling for the last couple years with cysts developing on my remaining ovary. I am almost always in some kind of pain. I had surgery last August to remove a cyst.
Avatar n tn What part was removed in your partial hysterectomy? If just one ovary, you should be in OK shape without a lot of help. If both ovaries but the uterus is still present, you could possibly try in vitro fertilization if you have hormonal help. If the uterus went, but you still have ovaries, and are young enough, you might be able to try your eggs and a surrogate (gestational carrier). A reproductive endocrinologist will be the person to talk to.
