Welcome to health care forum
Medicine to reduce weight is not a good idea/suggestion.It should always be avoided. As you have under gone C.section 9 months back & till now you are breast feeding the baby.You can start with morning or evening walk with some light exercise daily for half an can also do jogging for 15-20 minutes daily.Avoid fatty & high calorie feed.start more top feed to your baby or start weaning as your milk now cannot provide all necessary nutrients to baby.Disclaimer

Hi i had delivered 1 yr back, i was 59 kg before delivery. after 1 month after delivery my weight was 65 kgs. i didnt have normal delivery it was Cesarian operation. because of anaesthia only i gained wt, that is the cause for our overwt. i think even you had anaesthesia. it took almost 6-7 months for me to reduce the wt. i was lactating so need a very healthy food for milk production. so didnt go for any dietary restriction. did some walking and some yoga. this helped me a lot to reduce the wt, but it took a long time almost 6-7 months for me to reduce the wt. i will advice you the same, not to compromise on diet, exerise and yoga wil help.

Anaesthesia will not lead to any increase in weight....only thing is after cesarean section...we will have to take more rest ...which leads to increased contrast to normal deliver we will not need much rest..we can go for regular work with in a week .we can reduce our weight but it is a slow process ...being a feeding mother never reduce the food intake...only thing is walk as much as u can...and have a long term planning...once u are done with feeding..then u can diet...

why blaming anesthesia. it is common during lactation to put on lot of weight. we need to feed the babby so we eat lot of food stuff. i think we should not compromise on our eating pattern during feeding. after one year of delivery i started concentrating on reducing weight. within one year i reduced to almost to previous. i followed the strict exercise and reduced intake of food advise given by my doc. i think for the first one year after delivery we should not think of reducing weight.

I am a 31 yo female. I had a baby 20 months ago. Since then I lost all of my baby weight plus 25 pounds without even trying. I can t seem to put the 25 pounds back on. My whole adult life I have weighed 150 even with dieting and exercise. Now I weigh 125 for no reason. All my blood tests came back normal. Should I be concerned?

Hi, Dr I am grossly overweight. I have been fighting the problem my entire life. I have tried to get some answers from my GP only to have him deny any interest in the problem. According to him it doesn t matter. He did finally suggest a nutritionist in the Clinic. The visit (costing $297.16) produced nothing. She was of the opinion (and I was painfully honest) that the food was not a problem, but a lack of exercise. I must admit that I don t exercise as much as I would like to. I have an painful back due to a very active younger life and resulting injury to my spine. I am now 89 years old, use a cane for better balance walking outside, and my walker in the house because it is easier on my back. Unfortunately for my peace of mind, and he is a very pleasant man, I have begun to believe that my well-being is of no interest and is deserving of merely a hand shake after the allowed fifteen minutes. I am probably wrong, but it is now bothering me. Sorry, I have been with him for a number of years. I need to lose weight! I am obese, I weigh 189 pounds, I am 5 feet 4 inches in height. MY health for my age seems to be good. I have had a heart attack, resulting in a stent over my heart. I have two knee replacements resulting from teaching and sking for over twenty -five years, I have had three sons; April 1949, December 1950, and January 1952. I live by myself, with a cat, drive my car, and am very busy with church activities ( bell director for our hand bells ), call for a group of elderly square dancers as well as cue for round dancers. ,1950 merely a hand shake

I started taking Phentermine two weeks ago for weight loss. My doctor prescribed the pills for me. I took a half tablet for about 4 days and then I began to take a full tablet. After one week of taking the full tablet, I noticed that the finger nails and the tips of my fingers were purple - like I had been coloring Easter Eggs. It was not from anything that I had touched, the purple coloring was in my skin. It was color that was bleeding thru the cracks in my skin ---- is the best way that I can put it. It was just a bit.... but very noticable. Then, the next day... my right hand did the same thing to me. I noticed it when I woke up. Once in the shower, I was shaving under my arms and I noticed that I had HUGE black and blue looking spots under both of my arm pits. Both arm pits looked like I was beat up - but under my arm pits. The purplish coloring was not a bruise tho. It didn t hurt, it wasnt swollen up, it wasnt blotchy. I just appeared. As the day progressed, the same type of black and blue blotch appeared on my left lower arm too, but on the underside part of my lower arm. Nothing appeared on the top of my arm or shoulder or my back or my chest. Only on the under arm area and the under side of my right forearm. That was on Monday. Today is Wednesday, and the huge blotches are almost gone now. The only thing that I had changed in my routine and eating habits was that I was taking these diet pills. They are white with blue specks on them. Someone told me I may be allergic to the blue dye in the pill.... but it was huge patches under both of my under arm areas. Looking exactly like black and blue marks. What could this have been?? I felt good, I felt no pain. I went to work as usual and I actually have had so much energy being on these pills that I was going to ride my bicycle to work on Monday. But when I saw the huge blotches under my arms, I decided not to exercise because I was very alarmed at what was happening to me.

Hi! My daughter is a little over 2 years old and since she was 6 months (i.e., after she stopped breast feeding), she s had chronic constipation. Our doctor has kept her on Merolax (a stool softener) and swears such long-term use will have no ill effects. Although her stool is now soft, tne problem is that our daughter now tries to hold her stool in (goes ridged and crosses her legs), resulting in something like 12+ small diapers per day and a VERY red bottom, no matter how much diaper cream we use. Also, lately she s complained of abdominal pain a few times a day, and we ve noticed that her tummy is pretty pronounced although she is not at all fat. Now we re worried about some form of bloating too! Any ideas??
