Brief Answer: it is normal and will resolve soon Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Welcome to Healthcare Magic. The abdomen may appear distended in immediate period of posts surgical period. Theis is expected and is due to hypotonia in the abdominal muscles. If there is any pain then you must be examined by the operating surgeon. The abdomen will take preoperative levels once you resume full activities. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?
