Hey Ladies,
It has been nine weeks post op today and I have a question. When does the swollen belly go down to normal? Today it seems like it is larger then a few weeks ago. I have not been doing much bending or pulling, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Swelly Belly

Hi Debbie,
I'm a 1/29 TAH/BSO and have had the same concerns - some days I look 5 months pregnant and on others I am much slimmer than I was pre-op. I have no idea what is going on!!! It has been very frustrating, and trying to figure out what clothes to wear (what clothes may actually fit!) is making me crazy. I have started back to work PT and rest alot when I am home.

Hang in there!

Hi Janet,
Thank you for your input. Like you the swollen belly drives me crazy. My surgery was the same time as yours. I am also on Cenestin 0.625mg. How is Cenestin working for you? I seem to be doing ok with this ERT.

ok ladies here's what I have to say about swelly belly

when I get up in the moring mine is gone

I can sit at the pc for about 1 hour and it strarts

so I go back to bed then it goes

I go for a walk an it strarts again

so I go back to bed

then I get up and eat and walk around the house again and then sit back at the pc and it starts all over again

so my day is like this
wake up, eat, sit, sleep, wake up , walk,, sleep, wake up ,eat ,walk ,sleep ,wake up ,walk , sit , sleep ,eat , rest ,sleep and sleep some more ,
and some where in there is a hole lot of drink going on
so I feel all worn out just thinking about all my swelly belly
hugs ladypeewee
