similar situation!! - sleep and swelly belly questions after hysterectomy

I had my hysterectomy on 11/19 and I am on my 7th week of post up now, started to see belly is bloating/swelling after mid day. I did start to do some more walking and like strength training because last week when i went for my check up my Gyn told me that I can go back to previous activity now.
I do eat healthy food but sometimes munch on chips (not sure if salt/sodium/spicey pickle can do the swelling or not?
I will see my GP soon.
I am reading similar post here and know I am not alone here.
Any advise/help will be appreciated!

Sleeping is a big issue, I have been taking Melatonin 3 mg from last three days but feel very uncomfortable the next day.

Everything I've read on here says activity will make the swelling worse! Please don't overdo it take care of yourself! I'm only 2 days post op and already swelling like a balloon!

Your most welcome sister!
I wish I had more advice for you but I am still feeling my way in the dark so to speak as well!

My diet will be a little bit different to yours as I am completely lactose intolerant... I don't have the luxury of munching on quite a number yummy stuff because they all contain milk or milk products! Right now I am being a bad girl and munching on two pieces of celery with blue cheese... I'm not supposed to have the cheese and hoping it might help loosen up my bowels which I think is also causing some of the swelling!

Oh!! no worry sister, your support is everything to me ((((((((((huggy)))))))))))))))
I know it is hard to give up some yummy food..
I have cholesterol and still pig on fried foods (NOT GOOOOOOD )
I do have discipline in me or I would not have stayed quit from alcohol so far (5 months now!!)
also quit smoking too (yeeeeeeeeeeee)
but yummy bad food still is a problem

My swelling went down from before and it is 4 months now so stay strong sister

Thanks for sharing!!
