tubal ligation

Hi all. I just posted in induction but has anyone else had a tubal ligation? Had a miscarriage in December and tubal ligation early March. My weight has absolutely ballooned and I've gained 50 lbs within about 8 months.

Not sure if depression or side effect due to hormones. Any input?

that's a bummer. I know I gain that fast if I just stop counting every bite I take and staying hungry all the time, but I don't think that's common...

the first thing is always: have your thyroid checked. Free T3 and Free T4. look on the thyroid board here for more info.

If that were a common thing with TL I think we would hear about it. Doctors would be extremely reluctant to do it.

That seems odd to me. So 8 months ago means that you started gaining weight before the tubal, right? I would chalk it up to the depression. Are you eating on plan or have you just thrown it out the window? The reason I ask is because I can easily put back on 50 lbs in that amount of time if I havent been on plan the whole time. You can always call for a blood panel but it seems to me that the problem started before the tubal and closer to the m/c. I'm sorry for your loss.
