Hi I recently had a Davinci hysterectomy (12/14/12) and have a very swollen abdomen and thighs, will this eventually go down. I kept my ovaries, they removed the uterus, cervix and one fallopian tube. I feel fine, but I am having difficulty with this swelling and cant lose weight easily(I have been exercising two miles a day on treadmill and have cut back on my eating alot.) Any advice? Thank you.
How are you? After hysterectomy, symptoms such as pain, swelling and bruising in the abdomen; blood-stained vaginal discharge; numbness, tingling or a burning sensation around your scar and feeling emotional may be observed. It usually takes about four to 12 weeks to make a full recovery from an abdominal hysterectomy.However, this varies between individuals. Regular follow-up with your attending physician is highly recommended. Take care and do keep us posted.
