I'm 4 days post-op bypass, no real pain, never has been. I'm concerned because my abdomen is so swollen. I know the bruising  is normal, I'm able to drink all the required fluids and take my meds and have had a bowel movement....would feel great if my belly would go down!!! Just want to make sure this is a normal side effect

Perfectly normal, and it will go down over the next week or two.

Personally I found the swelling went down after 4 to 6 weeks.  I also had RNY.

 

Good luck with your recovery.
