I'm really discouraged over my weight. I've always struggled - esp since pre-resection I was mostly on a carb diet since it processed easily. My resection was in Feb and now I can eat lots of veggies and salads, and do, but I've PACKED on weight. Since surgery in Feb, I've gained almost 30 pounds.
Why? I'm not on steroids anymore. My calorie intake is about the same. What gives?
I read somewhere that your body changes the way it processes food - could it be metabolizing it differently now?
Now I'm more discouraged over my weight gain than I am about my disease. I can hide that, at least.
If you have gained weight, was it easy to lose?
