Tummy Care after Hysterectomy | Excessive Swelling

From the Hysterectomy Recovery Articles List

Fitness and Wellness after hysterectomyMy recovery seems to be going very well, but I'm finding that at the end of the day, my tummy is swollen and very sore. I went out to the malll with some friends yesterday. Did I do too much? Why is my tummy more swollen today than it was at one week post-op?


If you are experience swelling in your tummy after hysterectomy, it usually means you are doing too much too soon. Take care of yourself and give yourself time to heal. Each day you will gather more and more energy. Just be careful not to "spend" it all in one place, all in one day.

With any type of hysterectomy (whether abdominal, vaginal, laparoscopic, or robotic), organs were removed, and tissue was sutured. Healing must take place, and the key to healing is rest.

Listen to your body and rest when you aren't feeling well. Some days you might feel as though you are taking two steps forward only to experience "one step backward" the next day. Hang in there!

Also, be sure and contact your doctor's office with any questions you have for any symptoms and concerns you have for a swollen tummy. If your tummy becomes hot and painful and you spike a fever, be sure to contact your doctor immediately.
