Swelly belly or belly fat?

I had my hysterectomy 3 1/2 years ago, my belly was puffy for a couple of years, then went down and now since my breast reduction I have a bigger stomach than after the surgery. I kind of think it is because of the fact that my surgeon did not pull up on the tissue when he stitched me back together. He did take off a lot of breast tissue though. Some of the women say they were offered a tummy tuck when they had their hysterectomy, mine did not unfortunately. I would give your doctor a call and ask him/her about the swelly belly.

Do you mind if I ask if you are from CT? Would love to compare notes. My doctor was beyond fantastic, he still is. I can call him for anything and everything.

Swelly belly or belly fat?

Today is three months post-op for me and still having this swelly belly is not making me happy. I joined a gym 2 months ago, but due to issues with my back, I have been there only sporadically. This past Friday I had a second round of spinal injections for herniated discs in my lower back (cortisone), I look like an early Halloween pumpkin. Is it possible to dump the tummy bulge with a bad back and does anyone know how long the bloated effects of cortisone may last?
I hope everyone out there in Hysterland is doing well and you're all about to enjoy a fabulous holiday weekend )
