Question Huge weight gain! What is up with that?????

I eat really healthy and have for many years. I eat a very well balanced diet. With having six kids I have only gained the min. weight and went back down to my size before my baby within the year. Well, my last one was 3 years ago. I lost the weight and have maintained it. Then out of no where-within 3 months I gained 30 pounds. It seems to be all in my torso. Right after that I got shingles, and found out that my Ferritin level was 4 and I was anemic. I also found out a couple of years ago that I have a tortuous colon(they did a colonosocopy because of blood in my stool). I still have blood in my stool(which they said is from hemorrhoids). I'm having pain across my stomach, bloating, and a sharp pain down by my ovary(at least that's where it feels like it is). Also, after my last baby they pulled out my gallbladder two days after she was born. I seem to have had no problems before that!
Can anyone give me a clue of what this is? My doc says it's just because at 37 I'm getting old.

I was hoping someone else would reply to your thread. I don't want to worry you but some of your symptoms are a bit disturbing. Please have your ovaries checked out. Weight gain around the abdomen and not allover and abdominal pain can indicate a problem with your ovaries. Best to have it checked, I'm probably wrong. I truly hope it's nothing serious. All the best.
