Elvislover -- first, so sorry to read about what you must be going through... good luck with all that!

I just wanted to clarify that, while I *did* put on weight after having everything removed (same as you -- uterus, tubes, ovaries) it was because of the stress I was going through with my health issues. I knowingly decided to jump off track and console myself with food. Bad, bad. Maybe I gained weight faster than I might have otherwise, I'm not sure. But I don't believe I gained the weight *because* of the surgical menopause.

Good luck to you. Surgical menopause is definitely not well understood by friends, or at least that's what I found. AND, people don't seem to understand that there is a big difference between having only the uterus removed and having everything removed. Trust me, I get it...

Again, good luck!
