How much fluid is in me??

I had a LAVH on Friday the 18th. How much fluid is in me? My feet are swollen, my rings are tight. I weighed myself this morning and I have gained 1 1/2 lbs since surgery. How long does it take to go away? I have been drinking alot of water but really no appetite.

Re: How much fluid is in me??

To be honest I have no idea. I know they gave me a bag before during and one after. I was swollen up for at least a good 2 weeks before I felt "normal" and unswollen. Not that you want to hear this, but at the end of the day I still get swollen in the belly area. I am nearly 4 weeks post op from a TVH.

I was told that it would take at least two weeks for the excess fluid to leave. I'm on week 3 and still have some.
