I am a 55 year old female. I had sepsis last year due to a kidney stone that was blocking function on one side of my kidney. I was given a lot of fluids and, of course, a lot of drugs to fight the infection. I was on clear liquids after the first several days of only feeding from the IV. I barely ate anything, but didn't lose any weight during my hospital stay. Since I have left the hospital, about 14 months ago, I have gained about 20 pounds that I can NOT control through diet or exercise. The scale continues to inch up I normally weigh between 130-135 pounds and am at my highest weight ever and miserable. Has anyone else had issues with uncontrollable weight gain following a battle with sepsis?
