So, I am hoping for some insight.
I had a resection in October and lost some weight after the surgery...naturally. Prior to the surgery, I was really happy with my weight and I was stable. Now, I have put on weight, enough to make me very uncomfortable. I really have not changed my eating habits - who doesn't have a bowl of ice cream here or there? And I go to the gym three to four nights a week for at least two hours.
Has anyone had similar experiences after surgery? What did you do to help lose the weight? Or if anyone has some great diet tips, that would be awesome too.
Thanks to everyone!
