Default weight gain

I had bowel resection surgery and developed an infection in theincision. The incision needed to be reopened and I was inthehi=ospital for another 2 weeks. Was sent home with slight fever and gaping wound. Visiting nurses came to dfo the packing and gradually the wound healed-except for three openings which would not heal for 10 months. I was given vancomycin IV in the hospital and I think I was allegeric to it as even a pic line became kinked within 24 hours and my arm swelled then they removed the pic line. <br><br>I went to the wound centers for 5 months every week and finally the DR. did a culture in the wounds and found I had severe MRSA infection. He prescibid zyvox which work wonderfully no nausea etc. I tooka 5 week course of zyvox. The only side effect I seem to have is the fact that I gained a great deal of weight right after I completed the medication. I was wondering if this was a side effect. I had lost almost 40 lbs in the hospital and for months after continued to lose weight. <br><br>I am struggling right now with the weight gain as the weight doesn't seem to want to go away-can anyone give me some help about this?>
