8 weeks Post-Op and Swollen Lower Abdomen...still!

My lower abdomen is still swollen....more swollen then I looked before my sugery (they took everything out!). Could it be from doing to much or could it be from the V-Dot I'm taking (1.0). Before surgery and during the first 4 weeks of recovery I had lost about 15 pounds. I've again about 10 back and I still weigh less then I did before the surgery. I just feel like I look like I'm pregnant.

I'm so frustrated! I have worked very hard to lose a lot of weight over the last 2 years...90 lbs to be exact.....and I dont' want to gain it back. If it hormones, maybe I should go off them and try something natural?

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

I am 7 weeks post-op and my belly will swell if I do too much. I also find if I wear pants or jeans with a tight waist band and do a lot of sitting I will swell.
