Default Gaining weight too quickly?

2 things I should preface my post with:

1) my hedgie has always been on the small side, the most he has weighed is about 330g.

2) my little guy was diagnosed with WHS 11 months ago

Almost immediately after his diagnosis, my hedgie dropped from 330g to 300g. He stay at 300 for the first 6 months of illness. But over the last 5 months, he's lost quite a bit of weight. For the past few months, he has been steady around 240g.

But over the past 2 weeks though, he has been gaining weight quickly. He weighed in at 260 last week and at 290 yesterday. There has been no change in diet. If anything, he's been eating a little less than usual. I'm happy he is getting closer to his original weight but worried about the speed at which he is gaining and that it is seemingly out of nowhere?
