Feeling swollen from time to time

I was wondering if anyone felt some swelling in the region of where your legs meet your torso? When I sit down, I feel a little swelling in these areas. I didn't have my ovaries removed and I am about 4 months out of surgery. I was just wondering if anyone else had this happen to them. I am not in any pain, just feel a little bloated in this area along with some bloating in my stomach above my incision.

Feeling swollen from time to time

Hi there

At 4 months, you are most likely still recovering: while we are normally released to resume the majority of our normal activities at 6 to 8 weeks, it can take anywhere from 6 months to a full year.. and even beyond, to fully recover from this surgery.

The swelling you describe could be part of the swelly belly that is often present in that first year. Of course, if you really are concerned about this swelling, you may want to discuss this with your doctor.

Hope things improve soon
