Abdominal distension anyone????

I'm not sure what to make of this, so I wanted opinions. I had a TAH/BSO on 6/25/07. I was on Lupron injections six months prior to that to shut down my ovaries. About three months into my injections, my upper ab became very distended (and remains that way even now). My lower ab is relatively flat and soft, but between my ribs and belly button, its hard and distended. I've had tests and CT scans and theres nothing they found. Is this hormone related??? My waist has increased by about 4 inches due to this. Its constant, so it's not due to bloating.. its there 24/7. Anyone have anything like this?

I am sorry you are dealing with swollen belly. I think after this surgery some of us gain a pound or two around our waists, but I have not had a distended tummy.

I guess the thing to do is keep trying to find what is causing this even if it means getting another opinion.

Maybe someone who has had Lupron will come along to offer some help.

Hang in there
