5 days post op - swelling around vagina normal??

I had a total abdominal hysterectomy 5 days ago. My tummy is very swollen but I haven't had a bm so I'm thinking that is part of that. But, my vagina area is swollen as well. Is this normal from an abdominal? I'm not sure and just wanted to get some advice. Thanks!

Hi mrs daisy,

I had abdominal surgery also 9 days ago and my vaginal area is swollen also. In the hospital they said this was normal.

Good Luck,

That's good to know. I just thought it was rather strange since my hysterectomy wasn't vaginal?!?!?! Did they suggest you use an ice pack or anything? Thanks for the info!

They actually didn't tell me what to do about it just that is is normal. Mine is still swollen but better than it was last week. I see my Dr on Wed and I'll see what he says. Interestingly enough, I had a TVH in Nov and this didn't happen. My abdominal surgery I had 9 days ago was for complications and this time I had the swelling with no surgery in my vagina. Go figure!

5 days post-op Swelling around vagina

Sometime I wonder if a clamp wasn't put on the pubic mound to hold something.. That's how mine felt for days..And I have a huge bruise just above the mound.. That has actually gotten better, but now the stabbing pains in the abdomen by the incision hurt...so I have forgotten about the other swelling.

Hmmmm.... I had a TAH 14 days ago, and I had no swelling in my vagina or that whole area... in fact, it just feels and looks completely normal and has been normal since I got home. Strange.

You'd think a TAH would be no different no matter how they do it. I wonder why I don't have the swelling (not that I wish I had it).... but if all of you have it, I wonder why I don't. hmmm.
