swelling worse going into week three

hi evryone ..

I am 18 days post op .. and everysince the Dr removed the seemingly useless steri strips from my inscision at My 2 week . I have been so swollen i hadnt had alot of swelling in the first two weeks and now I look about like i did before surgery ( my uterus was making me look 11 weeks prego ) .. and I am still so constapated only having a bm every 2 or 3 days and only a tiny amount wich im sure is adding to my bloated look .. ugh .. any way How long does the swelling from TAH usually take to go away ? I was so excited the first few days after surgery because My Belly looked so small .. and its just been swelling little by little every since and especially this last 4 days.... its so demoralizing

Mine seems to also be swelling more, I hope it's because my tummy has gone into hyper-fix mode LOL

It's probably because we are moving a bit more, it won't last forever though.

Usually the more you do or overdo, the more you will swell, especially the more the day goes on.

Re: swelling worse going into week three

I had almost no swelly belly until about week three...because I didn't do much. Now, at 6.5 weeks out, I start the day a little swelly and end up pretty swelly by bedtime. I'm up and about so much more now and it's normal. I undrstand it can take months to stop...I figure since my belly was flat before the surgery, it's even more noticable to me. I'm hoping when I can really start working out in a few months...it will get better.

For now, I'm picking up some cute (cheap) long tops or short dresses to pair with legging and calling it good.

Good luck.
