    Angry Weight gain after gall bladder removal

    I am 25 years old, 5 feet tall, always been petite and around 105-110 lbs. I have always watched what I ate and the last few years have been gluten free because I thought I had a gluten intolerance/celiacs. Since getting my gallbladder out on 10/12/2015 I have gained almost 20 lbs in that one month. I was 108-110 lb before surgery and I am now almost 130 lb, the heaviest I have ever been in my whole life. My "normal" diet before and my diet now is the same. I eat a grapefruit or orange for breakfast, fruit, carrots, tuna or salad for lunch along with salad or a lean protein for dinner (basically the Scarsdale diet). Since surgery though, it doesn't matter if I eat salad for 2 meals a day and take a spinning class at the gym for an hour I still gain weight each and every day. It's very frustrating because people say there's nothing wrong or "I could afford to gain a few lbs" but a few lbs is a few, not 20. And no, I shouldn't be gaining weight if I'm burning more calories than I'm taking in. The weight I'm gaining also seems to be very cellulite-y which I've also never had before. It also seems tight and my stomach looks like I'm 6 months pregnant. I'm at my wit's end and getting so depressed about it. I know it's only been a month and a half but at this rate I will be obese by next summer. I have read hundreds of blog posts similar to mine so I know other people are feeling the same way. Has anybody here found a way to deal with this?

    I didn't have this problem and don't know anyone who has. What does your surgeon say?
