Tips for Swelly Belly

Swelly Belly is just a part of having a hysterectomy, or any abdominal surgery! Being prepared can help you in your recovery.

Make sure to wear loose fitting clothing. Now is not the time for jeans, but leggings and oversized tshirts. Wanting to look a little more modest for company or an outing – throw on a cardigan!

As you move further along in recovery and you are wanting to wear jeans, don’t get frustrated when you just can’t quite get them to button. The Waist Band Extender is the perfect solution for the in-between time. The swelling can sometimes last for a few weeks, but no need to buy new pants! Add the waist band extender to your pants and get up to an additional 6 inches for comfort.

Each woman is different in terms of swelly belly – how long, how swelly. Just be prepared, and be gentle on yourself as your body recovers.

Stay Loose

A big tip that we share is to wear loose fitting clothing post op.

Now is not the time to try to get into your skinny jeans. Wear clothes that are not binding across your belly for your best comfort. This is just temporary! You will get back into your favorite jeans, but give your body time to heal.

During your recovery, your belly is likely to be tender and swollen. We love this “Wear Around Shirt” made with 100% cotton and comes in several colors. They are customer favorites!

Stay comfy during your surgery recovery.
