Re: Is anyone still getting a swelly belly?

Took me a full year to not swell at the end of the day or after being on my feet a lot.

By the 18month mark it had pretty much stopped. Though there are days when I still swell a bit, it is usually if I have done any type of ab work out.

Hang in there, it gets better!

Re: Is anyone still getting a swelly belly?

My swelly belly is not too bad, some days worse that others, but I can wear my normal pants. My hysterectomey was Feb.1, 2012. Running around too much during the day definitely aggravates it.
I was hoping to be able to do some abdominal exercises after about 2 or 3 month to get back into shape. We'll see what the doctor says on Monday.

Speedy recovery to everybody!
