Hi everybody. I posted about post chemo bloating a few days ago and followed your advice to contact my CNS which I did on Wednesday.
I saw my oncologist yesterday and was greatly relieved that my swollen tummy wasn't due to cancer related ascites. However, she says I have a hernia underneath my op scar and that is the cause of the swelling. I just wondered whether anyone else has had this experience and would be grateful for any hints and tips on living with it. She said they wouldn't want to operate so soon after my TAH unless I suddenly developed acute pain meaning it had strangulated which would be a medical emergency.
She told me to get some control pants to hold my tummy in and Ruth at Ovacome said to be very careful about lifting things but I wondered if there are any other dos or donts that I should know about. I know this is a trivial thing compared with many other queries posted on here but I would really welcome any advice from people who have had a similar experience.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
