Swelly Belly

Anyone have 'permanent' swelly Belly? My surgery was in January 0f 2002. Still have a puffed belly and somewhat of an overhang. I had a vertical incision.

Swelly Belly


I like the way you put that, about the "overhang"
You have to laugh about it !
I am beginning to think that I've got permanent swelly belly. I had my hyst in Sept. 2001. I know there are a lot of others who are having this problem too. Please know that you are not alone ! Wish I had some advice for you
I'm sure some of the others will be along soon. Take care !

Swelly Belly

Thanks! I was getting a bit concerned. I thought I might be alone in this. I have been trying to do some crunches. I do a lot of hiking on the weekends but it doesn't seem to make much difference. It still seems to swell a little if I over do although it doesn't hurt. Its either flabby or swollen, lol!

I too had surgery in January 2002. Yes, swelly belly has been a huge problem for me. Also, I've been in constant pain since my surgery with adhesions. It seems when my pain is more intense my belly is more swollen. How I regret my desicion to have the hyst.

I really don't have any words of wisdom to share with you as to what to do about it. I look elastic pants!
