How long should my stomach be swollen after having a Tubal Ligation?

I had the surgery 5 days ago and my stomach still looks like I am 5 months pregnant. My stomach was flat before having the surgery and I'm really starting to worry that it shouldn't be taking this long for it to go back to normal. I have no signs of an infection or anything like that to worry about, just a big belly that has not shown any signs of getting any smaller. Thank you for your help.

I didn't have any swelling that I noticed but I was uncomfy for 5 or 6 days.. feel better and call your doc if you're worried.

I didn't have any swelling at all after mine.

I called the surgeon's office this morning and the nurse said it is most likely because I am so small. She said if I was a bigger woman it wouldn't be noticeable, so I guess I just need to give it time and it will be flat again. God, I pray she's right lol
