Swollen Belly before surgery

I wanted to know if anyone has had swollen belly before surgery? It is booked for Dec 5 2011...yikes! But over the last two weeks my waist size has gone from a 16 to not even fitting into my size 20 pants. I'm not sure if this is normal, or if it stress. Could someone help!

Re: Swollen Belly before surgery

I gained weight because of stopping my cycle before surgery. Turned out I had a cycle anyways. Hormones make you gain waist weight. It makes you want to eat...
have a talk with your doc.

Re: Swollen Belly before surgery

I suppose it depends on the reason for your hysterectomy. Fibroids or adenomyosis can cause the uterus to swell. I've lost weight - probably because I've stressed out a little - but my clothes don't fit any better. My ultrasound showed my uterus was swollen to a size equal to a 10 week pregnancy. I'm sure its worse during my period because all my pants are tight then. Your doctor may be able to provide some insight on that though.
