4 1/2 weeks post op having issues

Monday I will be exactly 5 weeks post op and my tummy is still quite swollen and tender, my breasts feel swollen and tender and I've been spotting daily. I'm also feeling pressure in my lower abdomen. Has anyone else experienced something like this?

I'm just a little over 3 weeks post op. I've had pressure in my lower abdomen for the two weeks. Seen my dr. today. She put me on a antibiotic. I hope this works. I feel pretty good other than the pressure. Still having BM trouble as well.

Thanks ladies.. So noone else has had spotting?
Have another issue now, after getting out of the shower I noticed a tender lump on the bottom of my belly. It's about the size of a half dollar and wasn't there last night.
My mom is concerned that it's an infection of my incision site. I'll be calling the doctor Monday.

Yes I've had (still having) everything you mention except sore breasts. It's all part of the journey. :-)

I have pressure and pain lower pelvis vagina and sore breasts. I am 4 weeks post op and spot a little too. Do any of you have vaginal pain or presdure from vaginal cuff? It is aggravating.

Wow, its good to have this web site as a reference to see how others are progressing. I have had the same feeling. Like my body is bloated like before a period. Swelling, still have weird feelings in vaginal area even though I had DaVinci. This has been the slowest recovery of any surgeries I have had...it sure takes patience...

Oh, and the weepy incisions aren't too fun either. The belly button one got an infection/cellulitis, so it's open and drains...what fun! My husband has been a trooper about packing it though, he wonders where this was in our wedding vows....
