It's been 2 weeks since my tummy tuck. Has anyone experienced some weight gain? Gained about 2 lbs and I don't have much of an appetite. Looking forward to some of your experiences.

I am now on my 3rd week post TT and I feel better that I have now lost a couple of pounds.I have gone back to the doctor a few times for him to remove excess fluid from my stomach. He says that is pretty common. Yeah, today I got into my jeans!

I was very disappointed when I got on the scales three days after my surgery. I was devastated to see that I had gained 8 pounds. But, as each day passed I started losing weight. I am almost six weeks post op and I have lost a total of ten pounds (from my pre surgery weight).
Good luck with your recovery

No worries!  A little weight gain after surgery is normal.  I always recommend that you not weigh yourself for the first month post op.  Make sure you are drinking plenty of water and eating healthy.
