WEEK 4 POST op pain is worse now why does that happen?

Well, I think around week 4 we become more active before we are fully healed, and the muscles and tissue is not ready to take on normal activity.

Your ovaries are probably fluctuating and trying to balance hormones, and this can cause mood swings, as estrogen levels go up and down till they settle down.

You are pretty early post-op, and it sometimes takes months to heal fully.

The swelly belly is a common thing, fluid mostly.

Here is a link to our post-op articles:


Hang in there and be sure to rest and not overdo. I would let my dr know about any pain or ongoing discomfort .

WEEK 4 POST op pain is worse now why does that happen?

I remember that 5th week being one of my most distressing. Right around the one month mark I was thinking "I need to get moving but i'm in more pain than I was before" By the 7th week I was feeling pretty good some of the time and by the 9th week or 2nd month I felt good most of the time.

Well, actually I found that nothing got rid of tummy fluid but time. You can do some strengthening and stretching gradually till you can be more fully active.

Here are some exercises I used in the beginning:


There is also an article about swelly belly in the post-op articles as well.

Hi, I also felt worse around week 4. Mine hit on mothers day weekend and I usually put all my flowers in that weekend. I had to watch my husband because I felt so bad.. I did start feeling better.. Good luck to you..
