Sleeve gastrectomy after a hysterectomy...



Recommended Posts

Has anyone had the sleeve gastrectomy AFTER having a hysterectomy?

I had a hysterectomy in 2015. Since then, I am unable to lose weight on my own, hence the reason for having WLS in upcoming September.

I’m afraid that I will still struggle to lose the weight after the WLS. Or that it won’t work at all.

I’d appreciate feedback from anyone and everyone who has had the sleeve gastrectomy after a hysterectomy, or knows someone who has. Thank you in advance!

Yes, I had my hysterectomy 14 years or so ago. Surgery was 9.5 weeks ago. I've lost 49 pounds.

@JoniR

hi newbie☺️

Many moons ago, answer to above is yes

it never occurred to me that having my hysterectomy

would have any input on my weight loss.

I'm still standing 7+ years PO - maintenance

I had my hysterectomy in 2017 and my sleeve in 2018. I'm down 72 pounds but I'm an incredibly slow loser (10 months out). The weight is concentrated in my belly pooch, but it is going down incrementally and steadily.

72 pounds in 10 months is an incredible victory! Most of my weight is in my belly as well, and my thighs. My mid section started growing steadily after my hysterectomy, until I topped out at where I’m at now: 282.

I had a hysterectomy about a year and a half before gastric sleeve surgery. I am one year out from gastric sleeve surgery and have lost eighty pounds. Twenty more to go to reach my goal!

Hysterectomy in 2016 here. I had surgery on July 12, 2018, and I am almost at my goal weight of 150 pounds.

1. Gestational diabetes at the age of 28 with child #2 in 1997 (also my last pregnancy). Gained 96 pounds during that pregnancy and lost 12 so by the time it was all said and done, I was carrying an excess of 80 pounds more that. Would. Not. Stay. Off.

2. Triple negative breast cancer diagnosis in 2009 at the age of 40. Mandatory year of chemo/radiation which completely finished wrecking what little metabolism I had left that the gestational diabetes didn’t wreck. Gained 15 pounds during that year that. Would. Not. Stay. Off.

3. Hysterectomy in 2014 because of complications due to chemo-induced menopause at the age of 40. And at the age of 41. And just for fun, again at the age of 44.
Went through menopause 3 times. Gained another 10-15 pounds that. Would. Not. Stay. Off.

4. Bariatric surgery in February 2019 after 21+ years of fighting a losing battle with metabolic syndrome caused by all of the aforementioned issues and yo-yo dieting.

When I was 28 and got pregnant with my daughter I was about 140 pounds and a size 8.
When I started the bariatric process at the age of 49, I was 259 pounds and a size 20/22.

Throughout my years of yo-yoing, I’ve always been a SLOW loser. I was the girl who would diet/exercise for 4-6 weeks before even 5-6 pounds would come off. Then after it would finally start to come off, I could count on losing about 6 pounds/month eating 1200 calories daily and exercising like a maniac. 

Then the instant I would stop that brutal routine, the weight would insta- jump back on.   

Since my surgery date on February 6th (where I weighed 244 pounds) I’ve lost 46 pounds.
Honestly it’s been “slow and steady”. Besides the first 2 weeks, I’ve not had a single week where I’ve lost over 3 pounds, but I’ve also not had a single week where I’ve lost under 2 pounds.

So if I can lose weight with my history, honestly anyone can

I had my hysterectomy 4 years ago and I'm currently going through the process to get approved for the surgery. I've had weight gain too, but I also had a band slippage at the same time.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
