Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Your weight is not increasing but you had a recent multiple surgeries and stress in life and probably depression due to loss of vision. However, if the weight is constant, be relaxed, give it time. If your appetite is good and otherwise you are active and do not feel malaise and early lethargy or fatigue, it is OK.
The drugs are not likely to cause a stagnated growth.
Take care
