Bulk Up After Injury

starting up a clean bulk after an injury. aiming to gain .5-1LB/wk. just few questions with a few things:a) will i gain weight back faster(muscle memory) so say if i gain >1lb each week for first couple of weeks diet doesnt necessarily need adjustment???

also other factors like carb level/water level how are these factored in after a diet, should i just weight a couple weeks eating same calories for a better reflection of my maintenance calories???
