Elastic Waistbands

on June 28, 2014

Elastic Waistbands are essential post hysterectomy. I only thought of it last minute and own one skirt with an elastic waistband. Luckily I wore it to hospital so it was there for me to wear home.

My stomach is so swollen and sore. Right now I wonder if I will ever fit into trousers again. This is a problem as I love my jeans.

The bruising on my stomach was so severe after both operations. It is still there but now mainly yellow. I suffer from swelly belly every night and the pain gets worse as the evening proceeds. For the past two days the pain has been bad on both my sides. I’m hoping it’s recovery pain as it is in the same place on both sides and is worse when I walk up the stairs. I can feel it pulling. My insides must be recovering now as well so who knows what’s going on in there after all they did.

Right now I can’t imaging wearing anything but a flowing skirt that touches nothing. Hopefully in a few weeks I will be back in normal clothes again, especially as we have a family holiday in August.
