    Default How long does your tummy stay swollen?

    I was wondering how long does it take for all the swelling to go down in your tummy from the surgery?

    Most of mine went down after 4 -6 weeks but I'm 3 months out now and am just now noticing that the left and right sides look equal.

    It improves a lot in 4 weeks but give it about 3 months for most of it to subside.

    Have heard a week two weeks, or longer for the C02 to expel from your system and healing/swelling to subside.

    Ok so question for you? Are you making a duck-face pose in your avatar pic? haha...just asking

    I was one of the lucky ones...not too much gas and swelling went down in about 3-4 weeks.
