Weight gain after surgery



Recommended Posts

It is the weirdest thing going in for my surgery and I am 208#. This is on September 26th Then when I leave 4 days later I am at 221.9#. I am going to assume that this is Water weight as per I've been on liquid diet is anyone else leaving surgery had an influx in weight gain due to holding in water or Fluid retention?? I feel bloated I have been passing gas I have been walking. Drinking tons of water but I guess I will go see when I meet with my surgeon tomorrow any thoughts on this. I am following the diet so it is just weird to me!!! I don't want to freak out!

I haven't had the surgery yet but from reading yes, people gain Water wait initially then lose it like the next week

I gain 10lbs just from the i.v fluids alone!!! My surgery weight was 228, my post-op weight (just a few hours later) on the same scale was 238!!!

So don't worry so much about fluids...they can come and go a lot through the course of a day.

I weighed in surgery day at 206 i think and I left weighing 219. I thought "what the heck did I do?" But thanks to the knowledgeable people here I realized that was Water weight and GAS omg the GAS! I lost it within 10 days or so though. Hang in there!!

I also gained weight for a few days after surgery but after the 1st week it poured off. Just trust it worked and stay hydrated!

Thank all of you so much you make me feel so much better!! I just weighed in at my docs office and I was 218. Which is still ten pounds up from surgery but with your guys advice I am no longer so.....worried. I am going to go over my Vitamins and things I'm suppose to take while I am with him today. I take medication daily and I have not taken any pills by mouth since the day before because I am scarred to crush them it makes me really uneasy anyone else have this problem?

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
