OMG I had surgery 3 years ago and I awoke after surgery with a very bloated tummy and to this day everyone asks if I am pregnant even though I am 51 years old. I have a tiny waist size 12 in clothes until u get to my tummy and then I need size 16 pants to go around my tummy but my butt and legs I take a size 11 pants. I wish I had never had the operation. Unfortunately they don’t make enough swing tops out there to cover the stomach. I would do anything to have a flat tummy again.
