Re: how long is stomach swollen after hysterectomy

I had a total vaginal hysterectomy and my belly was swollen for about 4 to 5 weeks after. It eventually went down one day and didnt swell again!!! How all else is well with you and your feeling better after surgery!

Re: how long is stomach swollen after hysterectomy

It depends on what type of surgery you have. An abdominal hyst generates more swelling that lasts longer than other types of hysts. But there are very good reasons to have abdominal hysts that far outweigh the inconvenience and pain of the abdominal hyst.

What kind of hyst has your doctor suggested?
