I am two weeks out of surgery. I feel fine, but I still can't wear pants comfortably, especially jeans. I am concerned I have gained weight. Is it possible I could have some residual swelling? I have not gained pounds, but I am used to working out and I could have lost muscle mass. Obviously, I can't workout for several more weeks.

Hi teach2 and welcome to ehealth: You will have swelling for a few more weeks...With an abdominal surgery, it will take longer...Check with your physician at your 6 weeks check up to see what he/she suggests exercise wise...Take care...
