Severe bloating and weight gain

I had a hysterectomy with removal of the uterus and cervix approx a year ago. Over the last two weeks, I have begun to bloat terribly, to the point where I am wearing a pant size up, just to fit into everything. It seems I have also gained ten pounds. This is accompanied by discomfort and pain, and doesn't matter whether I eat, fast, exercise or rest. I am so bloated, I feel like I am carrying around a mellon. I look pregnant. The dr performed an abdominal ultrasound and a pelvic ultrasound and found nothing unusual. What can I do to treat this? Please help - this is not only uncomfortable but very frustrating.

Welcome to this forum.
You might have some gastric issues. You might have some form of acidity, indigestion or flatulence. Keep your bowels clear. Take plenty of water and avoid milk, milk products and green leafy vegetables. Consult your doctor about this and whether you need some form of antacids or not. This has apparently no relationship with hysterectomy done one year back.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
