29837 tn?1414534648 I saw the primary a week ago regarding this problem. His take, as well as mine, is the result of stopping the dreadful pain medication Oxycodone abruptly, which was prescribed for me after my spinal surgery. As my ideal weight is 185, I now am 173. However, that's one pound more than a week ago. What this means, is that I'm not losing anymore weight, but have gained one pound. This tell me it's a gradual recovery from the withdrawal I'm going through. I know losing 15 lbs.
Avatar f tn I just had my ovary and tube removed about 12 days ago laparascopically. A couple of silly questions since I don't know who else to ask: did you end up with a huge purple and blue bruise on your abdomen after the surgery (about the size of a 3 x 5 card)? and how long did it take your bowels to get back to working order (like pre-surgery)? I'm trying to decide if my potty problems are from the surgery and will resolve soon or from the new heart medication I'm taking.
Avatar f tn So my Mother Had a hysterectomy about 8-9 months ago, surgery went great, though she had a rough time recovering. It turns out that She had an adrenal gland in her left kidney that gave her big headaches, to the point where morphine was given to her in the emerge. She ended up having the surgery and it went well. This was done two moths after the hysterectomy. Anyways, so after that she started developing depression causing to always feel like she couldn't breathe, lost in appetite.

Avatar m tn When I expressed concern to the nurse that I was still in pain, she said it takes about 18 months for the fusion to be complete and while the pressure has been removed from the nerves, they are basically regenerating or re-energizing so you pain may actually get worse before it gets better. that explanation really helps understand it. Here I am 3 months out and I still have pain, much less than before but not pain free yet. I saw my surgeon yesterday and just got released to go to therapy.
941354 tn?1250551418 It's almost what 10 weeks post surgery. Recovering from the surgery has been the easy part. Getting out of this funk, this lack of energy, yes they are still playing with my synthroid levels as I am still major HYPO. I have such fatigue I can barely function. Joint and muscle pain that I didn't expect. I feel like **** to be truthful.

Avatar f tn I really think recovering from this type of surgery is not the same for all women, and varies greatly both for length of time, the problems you actually end up dealing with/not dealing with, and the quality of the surgeon's job. Additionally, it helps to exercise the arm(s) early in the process. A PT (Physical Therapist) helped me a lot. (most) I never had any real problems with fluid accommodation but this is common and unpleasant, from what I have heard.
Avatar f tn We put her on a strict diet since the surgeon said that weight is a big factor. She was 88 lbs when she had the surgery so she is losing the weight. Only 5 lbs to go. The surgeon also said that she will probably tear her other leg eventually due to using it more than she should because of the tear on the other leg. Hopefully but losing the weight and keeping her active that wont happen. I would advise doing it if you have an extra $2500 laying around.
Avatar f tn It's not good to purposely lose weight while pregnant. It keeps the baby from getting the nutrients it needs. If you eat right and healthy and go for walks it'll keep you from gaining so much weight. In some cases women do lose some weight but no more than couple lbs. You might wanna find a new doc if he was concerned about you AND baby He would of put you on a special diet. But he shouldn't be telling you to purposely lose weight.
Avatar f tn Perseverance is the key word when it comes to losing weight. There are no magic ways and please ensure to take the right nutrients while trying to lose weight as this may in the long run affect your health. Start by keeping a food diary, this way you can plan what to avoid. Get the caloric count of all the food you eat. Try not to eat all deep fried and high calorie food and replace with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Avatar f tn I started with just 1 every couple of days to help my bowels move and realized that I was losing weight from it and felt skinnier. I continued my exercising but I had just started college so my healthy eating wasn't as healthy as before. Even though I abused laxatives for this past year I have gone from my original healthy 104lbs to 113lbs and feel disgustingly huge. My stomach is thick and I can't run as much as I used to.
Avatar f tn I have recently started recovering from bulina and my weight has shot up 6lbs in a week. will this weight drop off once my eating is back to normal and the purging stops? please help. . . .!!
Avatar f tn I got home last monday, but I was rarely online, so I haven't had a chance to post. I was suppose to be home on the sixth but everything that could go wrong did. I got pneumonia post op. My tougue was completely swollen. (anyone else had that?) The day before I was supposed to go home I was diagnosed and put into isolation for Cdif (I think that's how you spell it.
Avatar f tn I'm still recovering from emergency abdominal surgery. I'm so thankful I don't feel any of the pain I felt previously. What I do feel is my little peanut. He is so active. I really believe that hernia surgery helped him to have more room. I'm so thankful for every little kick even if it is at 5 am. Well I'm off work for two weeks so he can kick all he wants. I love him so much.
Avatar f tn u really shouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
Avatar f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!

Avatar f tn I am currently recovering from an eating disorder. I have been doing the South Beach Diet for five weeks. I have been on plan 100% but have gained 13+ pounds. I am doing the 30 Day Shred DVD daily along with other exercises. I know I have screwed up my metabolism and it will take me a lot longer to see results. I am thrilled to be recovering and not in the control of food and eating 24/7...but I am really having a hard time sticking with it when all I do is gain..
