I had surgery Wednesday morning. Now I can't get my wedding ring back on, my ankles and feet are a bit swollen, too. ????????
The IV fluids you were given while in the hospital are notorious for causing temporary water retention. Water retention can also be as a result of the trauma to the body from the surgery itself. But if you have any concerns that it may be a more serious condition or if doesn't subside, call your doctor right away!
I had surgery a month ago today on my stomach. Im still swollen and feel hard around my stomach. I have been told it can last up to 6 weeks probably even 2 months!
Messes with my anorexic head but I guess I should listen to the advice the doctors give! Anyway, I know that isnt your question but in answer it seems that you do get swelling and water retention after surgery!!
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
