    Hi there! I am 4 weeks post laparotomy with ovary and appendix removal.

    All I can say is yes, my tummy is still bloated and it has this flap of skin right over the incision. But it does get better as time pass by. Make sure you drink a lot of water, cause it helps flush toxins down.

    With regards to lying on the side, I haven't fully slept a night on my side yet since I noticed I get a little bit sore the next day. But having a pillow underneath, and make sure that you are positioned comfortably too.

    Just be positive, and try not to dwell too much on the negative (although our hormones do get the best of us smile ). Your body is doing its best to repair what has been cut and damaged during the surgery, so take it easy on yourself.

    All the best!
