How long for bloating and swelling to away after a hysterectomy?

Typical 3 weeks

Leg_pain
It's typical for this to last up to 3 weeks post operatively, however I have seen patients where it can take a little longer. Not much you can do, other than light exercise like walking. It can sometimes just take awhile for body to mobilize those fluids out of your skin and tissues in order to get the fluid into your blood stream and eventually come out as urine. Good luck!

Is a little bloating and some numbness after hysterectomy normal?

Numbness after hyst

Umbilicus
Numbness after an abdominal surgery can be normal. Remeber that when doing the surgical incision some abdominal or pelvic nerves ( that transmit sensation) were on the surgical field . Numbness can be normal. Bloating can also be normal however tell your surgeon about those symptoms to rule out other intraabdominal complications or intestinal obstructions caused at the time of surgery.
