Swollen 19 months post hysterectomy

I’m still having very bad Swelly belly and I’m 19 months post op. My stomach hangs so far down and droops at the bottom. What is this? Does anyone else have this issue? I’ve had horrible menopause symptoms this whole time and to be honest I think I have fibromyalgia but drs don’t say anything other than it’s my hormones. I cannot take hormones.

Hi, Wildforlife...
I’m nine weeks out from my surgery and I have Swelly Belly every day. I wake up with about 25%, and by evening time I am so swollen that it’s a uncomfortable to be in any position (seated or standing). It is miserable, but you are not alone. I don’t know how long we will be enduring this, but we have to try and be thankful that at least this is part of the resolution to the previous medical and health issues we had.

Hang in there!!

I'm 3 yrs post and I still get swelly belly sometimes... like today. I have been standing too much. But it's much better than it was at 12 or 18 mos.

Re: Swollen 19 months post hysterectomy

My thoughts are that at 19 months post-op, it may be a non-gyn issue. Do activities seem to aggravate it? If so, what type of activities? What do you do for fitness?

How about foods, does anything give you odd gastro reactions? As we age, we can sometimes develop food intolerances which can cause swelling.

Which doctor(s) have you talked to? Have you had any tests run? Those would be the places I'd suggest to start.

Fibromyalgia usually has widespread pain as a symptom, but you don't mention this, and abdominal swelling isn't one of the symptoms cited by Mayo and WebMD. While there isn't a definitive test for fibromyalgia, tests can rule out other causes.
