I had my hysterectomy on May 14,2010 and I wanted to know is bloting norman? Since the hysterectomy I have noticed that my stomach is getting bigger. Is there anything that I can do for the blotting?
I can relate to gas part! I had it so bad for about a week. Gas-X worked great for me. I will also mention that I was constipated too so I drank warm prune juice and that really helped to get things moving. Doing those two things resolved the bloating issue for me.
I had "swelly belly" for about 2 weeks, so it wasn't a big issue for me. It does eventually go away on it's own. Everyone is different with when it goes away. There are a lot of great posts out there of what other women have done.
I had mine in June 2010. My initial swelly belly went away after a couple of months, then it would come and go after that. I thought it was pretty much gone, but about a month ago it came back, literally overnight. It's been here ever since.
In my case, I had just started taking senna for constipation. I quit the senna this week, we'll see if it helps.
I don't really have any solutions for you, unfortunately, but just wanted to let you know you are not alone! I also look like I am pregnant...I think it is worse now than it has been since right after the operation. It is extremely frustrating, isn't it?
Talk about being frustrated. I can't see my feet anymore. My husbands is supportive and say "babe you still look good." But to me I can't take it. Like you I too had a small stomach before but now it is worse.
Ok thx.It has been almost a year and mines is still bloated. Not gas either. My mom said her's has been swollen for over 30 yrs. But it seems like it is getting bigger. My next Dr. appt. is not until week after next. Thx for the info.
I feel your frustration! Today is my "hysterversary" and I am still dealing with a swollen abdomen. I am a very thin person (5' 11 1/2" and I weigh 140 lbs) and there are times I look pregnant. My gyn said I need to see a GI dr. I did and had a colonoscopy, all was "textbook". I do notice a connection to my belly getting larger when I am more active as well as after eating just a little bit.
I have an appt. with my GYN this Thursday and another with a new GI dr. the following week.
I also developed ovarian cysts that have come and gone. I notice that my belly has been larger when the cysts are resolving themselves.
I wish you all the best. I truly know how incredibly frustrating this is and I am sorry for all of you experiencing this!
