I had a hysterectomy 14 months ago due to a womb full of precancerous polyps and five external fibroids. Got thrown into immediate menopause and been taking hrt (25 mg patches twice weekly) ever since.
Before my op I lost a lot of weight. My average weight is around 9st (I’m a small built person, it’s not vanity) and before my op I was just above 8 st.
Since my op I’ve gone up as heavy as 9st 10 - so that’s nearly 2 stone in just over a year.
I am trying soooooo hard to get back to below 9 and a half stone but can’t get below 9st 7 no matter what I do! I know it may not sound like a lot but if I hit 10 stone then I just pile it on and it’s not good for me.
I walk my dog 2 miles daily, and to work/back. I do aqua aerobics twice a week. I swim 20 lengths plus weekly. I work in a primary school so am constantly on my feet. Food wise: I’ve tried weight watchers; I’m on Noom at the moment; I’ve had Hello Fresh rather than the odd takeaway/meal out; I eat lots of fruit/veg; only drink water. I’ve even been to the docs and had a tonne of blood tests and everything is working fine - no diabetes, no anaemia, no bad thyroid ....
I’m now wondering is it the after affects of a hysterectomy???? Is it hormones?? Is it hrt?? I just can’t think of anything else 🤷♀️
Anyone else had this experience?
