| | Swelling & Pain after Resection - trying again
I tried to post this thread before but I can't find it, so here goes again...I am just trying to find out from anyone who had an open bowel resection, how long the swelling & pain took to subside. I have a grapefruit sized swollen area on the left side and a smaller one above my belly button. And the pain has gotten less but is still there enough to impact me. My surgery was 8 days ago. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
