Thanks for approaching.
When it comes to weight gain after a hysterectomy, the usual culprits are hormonal
imbalances and lack of exercise.A partial hysterectomy
, when the ovaries are left and the uterus
is removed, presents a different scenario for weight gain than a full hysterectomy does. Weight gain with a partial hysterectomy may be the result of restricted blood flow to the pelvic
area after the removal of the uterus. Less blood translates into a drop in hormone production, which in turn affects the way your body burns fat and uses calories. The other reason for weight gain with a partial hysterectomy is the recovery period after the surgery. You will be told to lay low for a month to two months, restricting your physical activity which causes your metabolism
to slow down. But now ,its been more than 2.5 mnths.You can go for a normal walk regular for half an hr twice a day to boost your metabolism. A healthy diet
, high in fiber
and nutrients and low in fat and sugars is also important to maintaining healthy weight. Water - the wonder drink - is essential for the cells in the body to function, recover, and maintain a healthy metabolism.Try to have light dinners,before 8.30.You can consult a nutritionist who can plan your diet according to your medical history ,routine and bodytype. You will be able to shed this weight quickly as this seems to be your recent gain.
