    Gained 15 pounds in hospital in two days

    Lots of IV into primal body. Can IV alone do this?

    Are you comparing results of weighing yourself at home versus the hospital scales? A 15lb difference sounds like a disagreement between the scales rather than a real change.

    It seems bed rest can alter insulin sensitivity in that amount of time, which is your fat storage hormone, but if they loaded up your glycogen stores, It's just water. The best way to know would be if you had before/after readings from a bio-impedance scale or something.

    Yes, the IV can do that. After my hysterectomy I looked absolutely ridiculous. Like a water balloon.

    I was just surprised that I gained so much in less than 40 hours. Must part of the healing process. I just wonder if this more related hitting my high fat metabolism with all that glucose.

    Yes, definitely possible. I gained 12lb in 3 days, all fluid. I felt like Violet in Willie Wonka. Doc gave me diuretics, back to normal but blood pressure is still way up from it.
    I'd agree it was from the trauma and the fluids given. But you might want to get your blood pressure checked. Mine was almost double what is should be and my doc thought I was having a "cardiac event", but it was just the fluid.
    Good luck!

    Oh I though I read "2 weeks". Yeah, that would be some hardcore lipogenesis.

    My wife noticed that my unbroken arm was really swollen and the supline cast on the other arm is really tight.
