Bloated !!!!

I had my LAVH 6 almost 7 weeks ago. I have gained only 2 pounds since then. This is my question: Shouldnt the swelling be down by now? My pants are not really even fitting right and I feel super bloated!! Any ideas?

I know this is frustrating. Do you find the swelling gets progressively worse through the day? If so that is normal... the pits... but normal. Drinking LOTS of water helps. It keeps things flowing. Also, how's your salt intake? Cut that a bit if you can. I've heard this late day swelling can last months. Hang in there.

Bloated !!!!

Sometimes it is at the end of the day, but even in the mornings, I thought my pants would fit. SNUG as a BUG in a rug! Maybe I am expecting to much?

Bloated !!!!

We all heal differently. My surgery was Jun 28th and I still swell by the end of the day, and if I have over done it, well it takes a couple days to go down. Be patient and take care of YOURSELF, be sure to rest, rest, rest, and drink ALOT of water.
Happy Healings

Bloated !!!!

Hi swelly still appears every clock 2:00 p.m. I have found that wearing something in the morning which feels great, not too tight, not rubbing on my belly can end up feeling like I'm wrapped in duct tape by the end of the day! Aarrrgh! BUT I have been diligently taking my fiber supplement 3-4 times a day (the stuff you mix into anything) - my doc assures me that this will keep my belly flatter and keep my system moving. Also I ended up buying some light control panties and will wear them if my day is going to be a long one or if I have an event to go to after work. Remember to be gentle on yourselves...all I have to do is think back to this time last year and I was stockpiled knee deep in pads and tampons from the BIG BOX store! Oi!
