I think you should now focus on how to treat it well and improve its immunity. After removing the uterus, it is easy to get fat. This is a very common phenomenon that can also be seen in other pets. Illness and old age cause its metabolism to slow down, which is also why it's getting fat. Once it's healthy, you can help it lose weight by changing its diet and increasing its activity level. But now, you need to talk to the vet and get it cured as soon as possible.This is my personal opinion for your reference.
