After a surgery of removing a fibroma, should I expect weight gain?

After a surgery of removing a fibroma, should I expect weight gain?

Not really: You shouldn't gain weight after surgery. If you lie around in bed or on the couch and don't do any activity you must limit your daily caloric intake to your BMR (basal metabolic rate) to maintain your current weight. If the calories you eat are equal to or less than your BMR you will not gain weight. You will only gain if you eat more than your bmr. http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/. ...Read more

Small Fibroma removed from tip of my tongue yesterday w/stitches too.Today my tongue is swollen in and around the that area.Is this common/normal?

Not common: Lesions of tip of tongue or dorsal surface are essentially benign. In the anterior 2/3 of tongue, malignancies only arise on lateral edge. When lesion excised, I assume under local, the sutures usually control the incision with minimal swelling. I suspect because of vascularity of area that a suture may have caught a blood vessel and swelling is a hematoma. As such warm gargles may help ...Read more

Of course, cutting: tissue to remove tissue means creating damage (partially controlled) to tissue & capillaries, thus leaking cut blood vessels, damaged cells & cellular debris attracting white blood cells to clean-up the debris are all inherent, health (hopefully) restoring processes which create swelling & possible resulting tenderness/pain. Key to good surgery: minimizing collateral damage in ways easing healing. ...Read more
