First and foremost, consult with an endocrinologist if you have not already done so. What you are describing does not sound like a known risk or complication of your surgery. If you can determine the cause of your sudden weight gain and it appears related to your surgery then you should consult with an attorney specializing in medical malpractice. There is a 2 year statute of limitations on such claims in Pennsylvania .
You should consutl with a specialist immediately. If you believe there was medical negligence you have two years generally (with some exceptions) to file a lawsuit so you may want to consult with a lawyer who specializes in medicla negligence claims immediately. The lawyer may be able to give you an idea of whether there was possible negligence or if this is a complication of the surgery that is a known risk.
