Well UADONNA. My belly was swollen also a few weeks after because I was told not to lift heavy stuff for about a month or two, and I did it. So it most likely is due to that. Because I had the same problem and it went away. How are you feeling other than that? I feel absolutely great, I am glad I went through with the surgery. It's going on 3 months now. Haven't had any symptoms or pain whatsoever. So unlike some people on here surgery can be beneficial for people. Take care.
