5 months ago I had my second baby by c section since then my stomach as not gone down and by the end of each day it is rather swollen, goes down a bit over night and then same thing next day. Have recently had an unltrasound done and the doctor said there is some fluid in my pouch of douglas, could this explain why my stomach is so swollen. Also after my c section i had my tubes cut and tied.
your help would be greatly appreciated
A small amount of fluid in the Pouch of Douglas can be a normal finding following the rupture of a follicle and release of an egg at the time of ovulation. Other possibility is of an abscess in the pelvic cavity which can be due to an infection and which may need antibiotics or drainage.
I suggest you to discuss it with a gynecologist and get a CT scan done.
