abdominal swelling and numbness two years post op?

I am surprised to notice how wide of an area which is numb on my stomach and abdomen after being two years post op. I knew by night I still have a little swelling, but all of the numbness really surprised and worried me. Is this normal? I had a full abdominal hysterectomy and also two infections, the last one also requiring surgery.

Anyone have similar problems so far post op?

All have a great day!!!

Some degree of long-term abdominal numbness is fairly common, I'm afraid. I was told that it could take up to a year ~ if at all ~ for the nerves to repair themselves. At 2 1/2 years post-op I'm still numb and have seen many posts from other ladies who are the same.

If you're really concerned, it's always best to check with your doctor.

Wishing you all the best!
