    Hi there. I have just started on hrt . I feel I have put loads of weight on . Don't know if it's the operation 7 post op . Had TAH . Mind I feel I'm getting more hot flushes since started on hrt. Going to talk to doctor today to see if this is normal. I don't think it is . X

    Hi. I was put on hrt 5 days after my op and haven't suffered any flushes. Apart from a couple but not sure if they were due to the hot weather we'd had. But I have gained 1st4lbs (I am 19wks post op) and my tummy feels like I'm pregnant. Just started back on my cycling last week. Hoping to go out today too. I'm not back at work yet as I work in a school so not back in my normal routine yet. I know I've ate more rubbish with sitting around but I'm finding it so hard to get back off. My appetite has increased too. I wondered if this was due to hrt. My will power at the moment isn't strong. I have 2 prs of jeans that fit me and nothing else. It's really getting me down. I've heard of some woman who go onto certain pill gain weight and wonder if the hormones in the hrt are causing some of the issue. I can usually keep my weight steady but it's just gone mad!!!

    I'm not having issues with weight gain after TAH but I have other issues because of extensive lymph surgery. I spoke to many people about the hysterectomy before I did it and weigh gain as a side effect never came up. My joints ache and my body feels older. That's what I am noticing. And no HRT here.

      That's because the surgery never causes weight gain as a side effect. It's all about what goes into the letterbox - meaning being careful about your diet, & especially when pairing up the level of inactivity required during recuperation.

    HRT just like regular contraceptive pill always has, doesn't in itself cause weight gain. It just makes you hungrier so people eat more. It's all about control of diet. I'm in Australia at the moment & there was a big article in the paper saying that they now believe HRT heightens your chances of cancer 3x! They don't give it out very happily in my country - NZ. I also think it's the op causing bloating, not HRT. As girls not in HRT also get bloating, some for a long time after op.
