    Breast Leaking and had hysterectomy
    An_197304 posted:
    My right breast seems to be leaking clear fluid. I had a partial hysterectomy (still have my ovaries). is this normal or do i need to contact my doctor? it just recently started and after my hysterectomy i have gained 50 lbs. i am at my wits end.
    any suggestions would be helpful.

    thanks :)

    I'm sorry you're dealing with this! When was your hyst? I don't have a clue on the breast leakage but the two top complaints after hysterectomy are loss of sexual function and weight gain (about 25 lbs. the first year). The removal of the uterus seems to negatively impact metabolism.
    An_197305 responded:
    Call you GYN., no need to keep worring and ask about the weigh gain.

    I have only read about one women on here having any problems after having a hysterectomy. None of friends ever
    had any problems. I never had any problems.
