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.
Be kind to yourself,
