I had surgery nine days ago where the doc did laproscopy, endometrial abblation, hysteroscopy and myomectomy. I haven't had hardly any pain at all, but my abdomen is still quite swollen. How long does it usually take to get back to normal?
Thanks so much!! That's kinda what I thought, but it is so hard to wait! I am a fitness fanatic, and having this big tummy for the last few months has been very difficult. Just knowing it will get better helps a lot--thanks.
I know how you feel. I am love exercising my self and when I had laparoscopy, I hated to look at my stomach. It felt huge and bloated and I could not wear any of my work clothes. It took me about 10-14 days to get back to normal completely. Let your body heal and you will be back in shape in no time.
I too am still swollen 4 weeks on since my laparoscopy...
My stomach looks like a beach ball and I have had to invest in some new clothes...I am no longer size UK 10/12 but more like a 16!
I have had 2 infections, a hematoma and my Incisions won't heal!
when will it ever end???????? :-(
Its been 4 weeks today since my laparascopic surgery. This has been the toughest and longest healing I have ever had to endure. My stomach is still quite swollen. It has gone down a little but even after 1 meal it baloons again. I am almost 42 and I am surely no spring chicken but this is very depressing. I had a similiar laparascopic surgery just 8 months ago and everything was back to normal in just 3 weeks but this time I am clueless as to when my body will return to normal but I am trying to stay positive but sometimes its hard. Seems there are so many things fighting against me; if I sit too long I get sore and stiff; if I walk to much I start hurting or the gas that been dorment seems to awaken from the dead and then I have to pop pain pills which make me sleepy or drowsy so then I try to eat before I take the pain pills and then I have to take phentermine/promithazine for nausau which knocks me out for twelve hours; not to mention the complaint of still having constipation since my system is not normal or active; then I have to take mik of magnesia which seems to shoot through my system in 2 hours with an after effect of achy bowels from going to the restroom constantly. This cyle kind of repeats itself every 2 days. I am praying for complete healing and restoration.
