I just undergone diabetic TKA. I guess before my hospitalization I lost a lot of weight though after there hospital I gained 30 pounds in a month.
Is it normal to gain weight after diabetic TKA?

I went through DKA when I was diagnosed. I gained about 25 pounds in the following month. I suppose it is. I lost about 35 leading up to my hospital stay. My DRs wanted me to out on at least 30, but are happy with where I am now. It would make sense than after your body is regulated again you would begin to out on weight. I have really had to exercise with the food I'm eating, and they just recently let me reduce from 60 carbs per meal to 20/30, which is plenty for me.
Hope you're feeling better! That's a horrible experience.
