What preventive tests should middle-aged women receive to prevent serious illness?
I had a partial hysterectomy four years ago due to fibroids. I was 48 years old and weighed 116 pounds. (I'm five-foot-one.) Now I weigh 137 pounds. I have not changed my diet or exercise routine. I still have my ovaries. Do you think it was just the hysterectomy that caused my weight gain? What can I do to lose weight?
