How long will I look pregnant for?  I know how surgery works and swelling and stuff, but I am looking huge!  What was everyones experience with that?  How long did that last for everyone?

Just looking for some inspiration. :)

Thanks!

I'm almost 4 weeks post op and I'm still swollen, a little bit.  It got a lot better by week three though.

At 3 weeks post-op I was still somewhat swollen but by 4 it was mostly gone (had to go into the office for work at that point).
