how long does swelly belly last?

I had a TAH on July 8th. I am feeling pretty good except for getting tired. I also feel like I have bruising on the inside of my stomach and swelling. I was wondering how long that will last. I had fibroids and my uterus weighed 190 grams.

how long does swelly belly last?

Missy,
Everyone is different. I am 7 weeks post op and my swelly belly has gone down considerably, however, I still get somewhat poofy by the end of the day or if I do too much.
Doc says it will not go away until I am completely healed and my stitches are completely dissolved. Unfortunately, for some of us, that can be a few months.
Hang in there. Soon you will look and feel fabulous!!

HUGS

swelly belly

Dear caribbean,
Thanks for the help, I hadn't even heard of swelly belly until I found this site. The doc didn't tell me anything about it. I kept telling everyone I felt like my stomach was swollen feeling and also like I had bruises on the inside of my stomach. It does get better everyday though
