swelly belly: definition?

Hello again!

Exactly what is swelly belly? If there is a post somewhere already with this info let me know.

Does swelly belly happen only to those who have a TAH? Or can it happen with a LAVH too?

My doctor said I will have 4 small incisions in my abdomen from the LAVH, does anyone know how many stitches that requires? Are the stitches dissolvable? Can you take a shower or bath with the stitches? Do you have to cover them up to keep the water from getting on them?

I had a TVH and had some swelly belly. It can last a short time or maybe weeks later. It does eventually go away once all the healing inside is done.

Here is some info on it:


Best wishes on your surgery.
