    Don't worry, mine was the same but I'm now week 14 and all the lumps and bumps have gone, I think it's just all the swelling etc as no one explains what it's going to look like xx

    amandabeetle please don't worry too much because what you describe is perfectly normal. It's swelling that is common around this post op period. You have to remember there's been a lot of trauma during the surgery and this swelling is caused by it. I wish I had a £1 for every lady who has rang the ward thinking the surgery has failed. You probably need to rest more with your feet elevated, ice packs may help. Recovery from this surgery takes time as you've probably realised and at only 5 weeks swelling is inevitable x

      Thank you so much I waited 10 year to get a op so was so happy I got in the end and to be told was a lot worse than they thought to now see over the past few day the hole closing really has worried me so thank you I am sure you get it all the time but it has given me a bit of hope it may be ok

      amandabeetle I've also had the surgery as well as nursed patients on the gynae wards so I can empathise with you. I was the worst patient imaginable and like you panicked when I noticed the swelling but I just had to remind myself of what I'd said to patients to reassure them. I just rested a bit more and eventually the swelling subsided. Anti inflammatories such as ibuprofen may help and depending on the advice you were given regarding having a bath, that could help.
