I had the same umbilical hernia repair surgery 4 days ago, the day of, I was given a low strength pain pills before I left the hospital, it wore of in as little as 3 hours and the pharmacy was closed before I left the hospital... slightly unprofessional of them to not send me with an extra. Back to the base of the problem, my whole abdomen is swollen, to an extreme, everything to breathing is extremely uncomfortable! Has anyone else had this problem, the incision site isn't swollen and not nearly as bruised, the soreness has subsided, but I can't seem to get the abdomen swelling to go down.

 Please help!!!
