hysterectomy and weight
I had a hysterectomy 5 months ago.my ovaries were not removed.I recovered well however i have put on a lot of weight since the operation and my tummy muscles are very week.I dont think my eating changed that much except obviously I couldnt exercise for a while.
has this anything to do with the hysterectomy?I am 42 years old.

The hysterectomy would not cause this. Try doing some exercises now to strengthen your tummy muscles. Weight does tend to accumulate as you get older.
