What should I expect after OC staging surgery?

I had surgery on march 5th (salpingo oopherectomy and apendectomy- removal of left ovary, fallopian tube, lymphones, appendix and omentum(layer of fat that acts as a filter)) after a boarder line tumor was found in my ovary. My pathology all came out negative (phew!). It's been 2 months now and it's hard to tell if I'm on the right track healing wise. My abdomen is still swollen 5 inches larger than normal. What causes that and is it normal? The nurse hasn't been helpful, and I'd like to avoid going in since there's no real cause for alarm, just wondering who has had the surgery and how long it took to start doing sports and fitting into clothes!
