Weight gain after surgery


6 posts in this topic

Yes. It's due to the IV fluids and swelling. Just stay off the scale for the first couple weeks to a month. Focus on healing. It happened to lots of us

I gained 11 from just a foot operation in Oct, the IV really packs in those fluids!! :)

I had Bypass 6/29/2017. I gained weight from surgery. Is that normal?


I had RNY June 23,2017....my experience is: gained 5 to 7 pounds day of surgery....then lost 15 pounds 1st week after surgery, then nothing since....so far. I figure most is surgery Fluid and some weight loss from less than normal eating. Waiting patiently and following guidelines ..except need more Water, working in that.

I had bypass Nov 20th, when I got home I was 10 pounds heavier than when I went in. The first week I lost the 10 pounds of Fluid they pumped into me and 11 pounds extra. Haven't lost anything since. I'm still on week 3 puree. Anybody else with no weight loss weeks 2 and 3?
