Grrrrrr..4 pounds????



Recommended Posts

I have a bladder infection and have gained 4 pounds in 2 days. I know it's Water and will come right back off after the antibiotic takes over, but Geesh what a kill joy!

My clothes are starting to hang on me, but my rings have gotten tighter since the infection kicked in. I start the antibiotics this afternoon, so hopefully I'll see it drop off in the next 72 hours!!!!

I hate Water weight!!!

I also had a bladder infection. My Dr. said I probably picked it up in the hospital? I am on my 2nd round of antibiotics. But my weight did the same thing and it did come off later. This round it did not happen. Hope you feel better.

I didn't have any infection but I gained my 4-5 pounds of Water weight back. I think that happens in any hard core diet like the liquid diet pre-op. The first 4-5 pounds comes off so fast because its Water weight, it doesn't stay off forever, it will come back slowly, mine came back all at once when I got a nasty cold.

Once I started on solid foods again I think the body will naturally reabsorb all that water we initially lost. So I say let your body keep the water weight, and loose the fat! Give it a week or two, I hear this is quite common a few weeks after surgery.
