Every body is still wondering ..which came first?....chicken or egg?
The relation between obesity and PCOS is complicated one.
Experts are still not sure whether PCOS makes it easier for woman to put on weight or it is the extra weight which causes women to develop PCOS.
Since you have lots of fat accumulated in obesity,one has to resort to reduction in calorie intake and exercises.
There is no study which states that weight will also come down with removal of uterus and ovaries.
