Re: Sisters : What's the real scoop on the swelly belly?

well im 2 weeks out and definatly have a swelly belly, I did lose 10 lbs since surgery, probably being that the uterus was the size of a 16 week pregnancy and full of fibroids, I wear elastic waist pants all the time, which is probably not good, oh well, I got the ok for everything except sex, which is fine with me..

Re: Sisters : What's the real scoop on the swelly belly?

Grandmallie... I am 5 weeks out.. the swelling will get better. And..elastic pants are FABULOUS! I still wear them as much as possible. I have lost 13 lbs. I had everything removed and had a volley ball sized ovarian cyst. Just started treadmill walking yesterday. 22 min yesterday at a slower pace. will try 30 today.

Re: Sisters : What's the real scoop on the swelly belly?

I am 8 weeks out and still have the swelly belly. Mine is high and starts just under my breast bone down to my belly button. I thought I was nuts until I read on here about other women having it as well. I couldn't figure out how surgery made my belly so big buuuuut guess its normal. Hopefully it starts going down with time.

Re: Sisters : What's the real scoop on the swelly belly?

I don't know what "swelly-belly" is. I had gas the first week after surgery, but it has definitely decreased, and my stomach isn't bloated at all. I think it's gotten flatter.

Re: Sisters : What's the real scoop on the swelly belly?

swell belly can be from inflamation of the tissue/organs being moved, retenion of fluids, bowels trying to find a new home the uterus/ovaries(if you had them removed)....eventually it should settle down
