Had my hysterectomy 5 yrs. ago at age 45 but left my ovaries in. I have had no trouble losing weight on WW until menopause struck last year or so and am now having trouble just maintaining my current weight. I started on an estrogen patch last few months for hot flashes and associated problems and have had more trouble with weight gain ever since then. It's pretty discouraging for me. I had maintained a 30 pound weight loss for over 3 years and now am having weight gain issues.
I will say that I was very happy with my hysterectomy for relief of fibroid issues (terrible pain with periods, pressure from enlarged uterus, bladder issues with this).
