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!

It is not uncommon to have abdominal swelling for several weeks after having a hysterectomy. Call your doctor for severe or persistent symptoms. Also call if you have fever, chills, nausea, vomiting or worsening symptoms. When in doubt play it safe and see you surgeon.
