how long does it take for swelling to go down after a hysterectomy

I am overwhelmed because my belly is looking about 6m preggers still.I had a huge(16cm fibroid removed a year ago and had felt mortified at my potbelly for 4years as it grew bigger till diagnosed.Now I had a uterin/cervix hysterectomy and the muscles are totally useless.I am single trying to mingle and horrified at my potbelly.Is this a symptom of radical(cut pubis to bellybutton) abdomiminal hyst or will it ever renew these muscles.***? I also gained 20lbs from hormones and depression but that is starting to balance with HRT.

Great news ladies!!!
I started on biosynthetic hormone creme(plant estrogen,progetserone) and started introducing kelp(iodine) pills into my daily diet to get my thyroid happy and my weight has stabalized.I still crave sweets but am starting to lose weight now that my hormones aren't so confused.
