Has anybody noticed significant swelling 4 weeks post-op? My doc said to expect some swelling as the stiches were dissovling, but this is goin up around the side of me as well.

I am going to give him a call about it tomorrow.

JG my swelling has increased and especially if I active. Me and the DH measured it the other day and when I woke up my stomach was flat but by the end of the day it was 3.5 inches bigger and then in the morning it went right back flat. And maybe it is more noticiable because the consitent swell has gone down and we are now on our way to recovery we are paying more attention to it.

One thing that I haven't commented on is spotting. I have not spotted since I left the castle (crossing fingers that I don't start), to everyone still spotting I say hang in there you will be spot free very soon.

I definitely am more swollen by the end of the day. Started off today in my jeans but oh... could not wait to get home and get them off!

I having some little pains today too - especially on that right side. Hmmm....Wonder what is going on. Didn't really have pain much during this past week.

Okay - is anyone else having intense sugar cravings? Is this the hormones or just that my body got too used to sweet things over the holidays? Must...stop...eating...chocolate!

Someone else posted that the instruments used are on the right side, therefore, they thought that is why they were more sore on that side. I had a TAH, so I don't have personal experience with that myself.

Reply to Math teacher...I had a 4 week check last tuesday....yes, my dr. did an internal exam. It wasn't bad, but my incision isn't as sore (TAH) and I'm not as swelled as most are posting. God has blessed me with an easy recovery, which is usually not the norm for me. The only uncomfortable part to me was on the left vaginal wall, as I also had an A&P repair. I was sore a bit later, and I will stick to his advice of no sex til 6 wk mark because of that.

I hope this doesn't cause you more stress about your appointment. If he is a good Dr., I'm sure he'll be sensitive to your feelings and concerns. Besides, I've learned from this site that all Drs do things differently. I hadn't even seen him since the surgery til this appointment.

Hang in there. The worst is behind us now.

I need to get a life! :)

Sorry my last post sounded so pathetic but I will miss everyone on our special site, you have all made my recovery so much easier with your compassion and humor. Thank You so Much!

I guess the consensus seems to be May 10th,
But once a month around the 10th would be nice what do you think?

Happy Healing and God Bless!

Love to save
I see your still up
it's 11pm here in Ca so it must be pretty late for you! I am usually on this late after everything is done.
I hope you get some sleep tonight, I am starting to finally sleep better these days!
Sweet Dreams!
