belly shape change forever??

Hi all, I am just past the 6 month mark for my TAH and can't really call it swelly belly anymore. I have noticed just an over all shape/shift change in the way my abdomen looks and wonder if this is true for most ladies here at about the same post-op time as myself. I wonder if it is permanent? It didn't look like this pre-op and I haven't gained any weight or lost for all that matter. Just curious is all...thanks to those in advance for your wonderful words of wisdom.

Hi Cherryblossom67,

I remember wondering the same thing. Then by the end of
the first year, all was back to normal for me. I hope the same for you.

Appreciate your dose of inspiraton.....there really may be a light at the end of the tunnel!! Wasn't sure if this is a permanent fixture but I really do not want to buy a whole new wardrobe as I like what I have already. Everything so snug in the waist area, frustrating. Nice to have other women here that understand. Thought I was finished with my posting of questions at this point. Take care

As for the snuggness, I had that also...seemed in the mornings things would be better and then as the day progressed my jeans got more and more uncomfortable... I couldn't wait to get into my sweats in the evenings.

Eventually that all passed .... took about a year for me.

Hang in there, things eventually return to normal. Just takes time..

Ohhh, how I can relate to that....I bee line it into track pants from jeans as soon as I walk through the door.

Patience is a virtue! Thanks again

Thank you Genesis 50!!!!!! It has been 5 months for me and I was getting depressed over my belly size. Somedays feels like I am 5 months pregnant. Have tired crunches and other exercises but no luck.
Did your weight go up and down? Mine does but only by 4 or 5 pounds. You have given me something to look forward to.

Hang in there Hon, it takes time.. ugh. My Dr. told me it was swelling from
fluid build up in the tissue. Which seemed right to me, since it would practally
be gone in the mornings. Then I would be up and about and it would
come back. Yes, there would be a slight weight change, from fluid build up.

For me, exercise had no effect at all on that area........

BUT.... FOR ME IT DID ALL GO AWAY... I hope the same for you too...!!
