How long will the swelly belly last?

Can anyone remind me how long the swelly belly will last? I had my hyserectomy in 2003 and we left the right ovary. I just had that removed last week. The idea of lap surgery didn't work out for me due to adhesions, so again I have been sliced down the middle! I'm doing well other than the swelling is drving me nuts! I'm wearing my trusty elastic waistbands and have even cut some of those because the swelling gets worse during the day! Thanks for listening!!

Poor you, two major abdominal surgeries is no fun!

Swelly belly can last for ages but the worst of it, seems to have gone for me, at 8 weeks. Just as long as I don't over do things or wear something too restrictive.

Don't you just love sweatpants!

Does swelly belly include being uncomfortable as well as "swelly"? I feel like I did when I was pregnant and my uterus was full and heavy, but seeing I have no uterus, I cant be pregnant! My surgery was 8 weeks ago and I still feel really uncomfortable and my incision is still itchy! I even walk like a pregnant person, slow and careful. Is this normal??? No one told me recovery would be this wierd!

Its diff for everyone. I have had 4 surgerys now and its diff with each. I had a breast augmentation last year and it was 14 days before mine went down. I had my ovarys removed 10-10 and it was only 4 days.
