Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.
Your concern is regarding the swelling and bruising after a laparoscopic hysterectomy. Swelling, pain, bruising and soreness are common after this procedure and this should go away in a few days. Keep the area clean and dry and avoid doing any strenuous activities. If you notice any redness, warmth, pain or discharge from the area then please consult your surgeon as it can be due to infection.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
