Weight Gain


I  am 31 yrs old.I had  severe headache,so I went to a Neurologist .He advised me to take a CT scan.He has diagnonsed it as "colloid cyst in third-ventricule of the brain,with obstructive hydrocephalus" and advised me to go for a surgery immediately.A Neuro Surgeon had performed a surgery on 19.05.2008(Right Transcortical Approach and Near total Excision of Sol)
There was CSF league after discharge from hospital.Dr say this is due to post operative one.So stiches are made in the leakage.Now i am fine.


I am almost 2 months after surgery.

I was 65 Kgs Before surgery now I am 70 kgs. I am afraid of weight gain. Will it cause any problem inside or in the future?

In general, weight changes usually are not due to colloid cyst resections.  However, I would suggest going back to your neurosurgeon and asking this question since he knows you.
