Hi, I had my operation last Monday TAH and SOB. I came out of hospital on Friday and since the op my tummy has swollen up twice the size. In fact I look 6 months pregnant. I was a size 10 prior to the op now I am size 12-14. I did buy some larger joggers prior to the operation which I am glad about as I cant fit into anything else. My question is has this happened to anyone else and if so is it normal and how long does it last. I have been reading about it on the web but cant find the answer. I have not been overeating although I'm off work. I have always been very strict with myself regarding what I eat and always kept my weight at 8st 4lb to 8st 6lb. I now weigh 8st 12lb which is a jump of 6lb in a week. Also for 3 days after the operation I did not eat as I was being sick. I know its hard to exercise at the moment so if anyone has the answer would love to hear from you.
Love Babs x x
