What is the medical cause of swelly belly ?

MissyCat - oh BOY do I know what you're talking about with the droop !!! it hangs over the incision. very funky looking (deformed, even).
Water retention makes alot of sense. So, that's going to be my story and I'm sticking to it !
I'd rather have the drooping belly then all the pre-op issues I had -- definitely a good tradeoff, especially when I think about the belly eventually going away

TAH/BSO, aednomyosis, adhesion repair
Oh yeah! At 7 months, I'm sensitive over the remaining left ovary, the whole stomach seems to crave a good scratch, and I go up a whole size by the end of the day.

Don't scratch!!! Rub lightly, maybe with anti itch cream. Icepack, icepack, icepack.

What is the medical cause of swelly belly ?

I am wondering about your idea about all the blood rushing to the area. I had a TAH and partial TT 4 weeks ago this coming Tuesday.This swelling seems here to stay for a while. I am somewhat of a small frame and it looks like I have been stung by a thousand bees on my lower ab. Like the skin would just pop is stuck with a pin. The dr's are just baffelled. I am on my 4 antibiotic with no other signs of infection other than my belly is hot to the touch. Does any of this sound familiar to you or should i being taking this more seriously?
