    Think I have put on weight quite significantly for the past 8 days and I feel awful. All my jeans suddenly became tighter and uncomfortable. On top of that my face has gone very greasy. Each morning I wake up and look like I’ve just put an oil on my face … has anyone else experienced it?

    Ladies water retention and constipation as well as bloating are all side effects of the drugs and anthesthethics which is detailed in the paperwork.

    I ate half a packet of Prunes and nuts or so a day and drank hot peppermint tea to ease discomfort and clear the bloat and drank a glass of water with pineapple juice every hour. I managed to get rid of the bloat by about day 4/5.

    You can try that or up ur fibre intake by other means like a senakot capsule if constipated. Try not to eat much salt/salty foods as this will make it worse.

    In many countries peppermint tea is drunk after a meal to ease digestion and bloating! If you don’t like the tea try hard boiled peppermint sweets. Hope that helps fxxx

    Thanks @fran. I drink a lot of mint tea, lemon water and it does not seem to be working. Oh well – I will take it easy for the time being and crack on with gym in 2 months time to get rid of that excess. 🙂

    Ur welcome hun it’ll go down soon try not to fret! Honestly it’s purely gas and water. I had two little water pockets that built up directly underneath my incisions on my stomach they would wobble when I walked.

    Ive naturally got a very flat stomach so couldn’t understand what it was then realised it’s all the drugs and stuff draining away from the trauma site too.

    If ur super concerned just keep it easy on the carbs or go gluten free for a week or so fxx

    Hey Maggie, I’m 15dpo today and I’m still suffering with the bloat! I can barley eat a meal without getting painfully bloated. I also drink mint tea but isn’t helping xxx

    Omg I thought I was the only one suffering with my face. It’s just become greasy out of no wear. I’m 3dpo and I’ve got my appetite back so I’m eating loads, but this bloat is killing me! I look pregnant again. I wish there was something to get rid of it
