Do You Gain Weight after a Partial Hysterectomy?

Answer

A partial hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the uterus but not the cervix. Many women do gain weight after partial or total hysterectomies, due to the recovery period, and lesser hormones being produced slowing down the metabolism. Many gain about 20-30 pounds the first year post-op, but it is possible to control it with exercise and diet.
