I had my tubes tied a few months ago, since then I have put on some weight around my abdomen which I have never had (except from being pregnant-which I’ve had 3 periods since so not pregnant). I started exercising, cut down on drinking milk/coffee/sugar (which when I have done this before lost 5 kgs without exercising or cutting out anything bar the milk/sugar) this time I have done the same and out 5kgs on. My youngest (of three) is nearly four and I’ve sat at around 75kgs since having him whereas I SHOULD be around 63kgs, now I’m close to 80kgs.
I have never had to worry about my weight whereas now I feel huge and uncomfortable. My diet has not changed as in I’m eating more rubbish than usual, in fact I’m eating better, drinking green tea, taking vitamins, exercising and I still look like I’m about 5-6 months pregnant.As soon as I eat anything my stomach bloats and looks bigger.
I have seen the GP and I’m going back again this coming week but they brush me off, so I’m keeping a food/exercise diary to show them. I was wondering if anyone has had their tubes tied and gotten fatter around the middle? The surgeon has also said there were no hormones added so it (my huge belly) shouldn’t be from the surgery. Any ideas? Thanks.
