Weight Gain and Surgery
kw3251 posted:
I am a 48 year old woman with Parkinson's disease. About 3 years ago I had a surgery that relieved of a lot of my symptoms called Deep Brain Stimulation or DBS. I am so glad that I had the surgery; it has given me back my life. I still have some issues but overall, it is a miracle. The caveat - people (men and women) can gain up to 30 pounds following the surgery. Well, I gained all of them in a matter of 6 months. Are there any women (or men) out there who have experienced this in any way? I am very frustrated because I can't work out like I used to due to my condition. I am going to try aqua therapy. I'll let you know how it goes....
