    Oh yes, Chrissy, definitely had swelling especially at 4 weeks even after doing just a very little bit. I really felt I looked as if I was at least 6 months along pregnant by the size of my belly and truth even up to 6 weeks post op had good been of swelling maybe more like 4 months along haha and ugh. 

    I am now 11 weeks post op anterior and posterior repair along with hernia repair and kind of over did things (didn’t seem like it at the time) last weekend with kids and grandkids home for Mother’s Day. On Monday I had slight swelling/bloating and pressure in my pelvic floor area. I spent Monday just resting.

    I guess it is do something couple of days rest one day repeat even at 11 weeks...but not at 4 weeks for you for sure!

    Remember, Chrissy, you should still be in the do nothing all day...repeat mode! Rest and take care of yourself for another month for sure and maybe longer. Prayers for a full recovery!

    Try not to worry. I had bad belly bloat for about 6 weeks after Hysterectomy SSF and A and P repairs.    I would wake up looking normal and grow as the day went on. I am now 11 weeks and although I don’t balloon anymore and my weight is less than beore my op, my belly is still rounder. I am having to wear softer stretchier clothes as I am not comfortable anymore in my jeans. Thank goodness  it’s summer. The  bloating is annoying but very normal. Your body has been though a lot.
