Hi,

I'm Cindi, and I had my hysterectomy August of 1999, and went from 185 lbs to 280 lbs in a year. I have been struggling with diet and excersize to loose the weight, and have not had much success. I am on HRT, and on thyroid replacement as my thyroid began dying after the hysterectomy. I am so glad to see I am not alone in this.

My husband has been supportive but I know he would like me to be back down to the slimmer size, he by no means is against large people, but at a size 18 I was much more energetic and able to do more, than I am now at a size 26.



And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:13 KJV

Hey,
Good luck at the Dr. I will pray for you. I'm not sure what the deal is with us. I know that if I don't get this under control soon I will be in the big lady shops soon. My weight hasn't been too extreme, only about 15 pounds but my body has shifted or something.I was a size 5 after my surgery now my 10s are toooo tights. I have fat and flab where I didn't know I could get it. lol I have to keep a sense of humor or I'm doomed. My stomach is the worst. How is your skin, mine has begun to look like all wrinkly. Well I will pray for you to have the energy and strength you need to continue to care for your dad. I know how that is my grandfather lived with my mom the last few months of his life. He had liver cancer so they didn't do the chemo. or radiation.
Sorry to have rattled on and on. Let me know what the Dr. finds out.

Welcome to the Forum!
It's is so nice to know, I'm not the only one out there feeling this way!
Actually, I had my surgery 3 years ago this month. And I have been doing research about my symptoms. I found out that after a hysterectomery some women experience problems with their thyroid, which in turn causes the weight gain. It is sometimes mistaken for menopause so it is normally misdiagnosed. It is also brought on suddenly from stress. In May my father who is 87 got cancer and has moved in with me. I have been taking care of him, everyday right now to radiation, along with my husband and 4 boys. I called my Dr this morning and made an appointment. It is easy to check with a blood test. I've gained over 50 pounds since my surgery, with the most in the past year. I thought it was due to being 44 soon.
Let me know your thoughts and if you think this could be our problem.
Something gotta give! emoticon

Its so nice to know that I'm not alone. People look at me like I'm crazy when I have hot flashes. I'm only 44 and they think I'm too young. Or if they haven't seen me for awhile they take a double take. I have went up 5 sizes since my surgery 3 years ago. Talk about wanting to cry, that happens to me alot. Its insane, my body is a total stranger.
