Welcome to the community!   You are going to have the swelling for a while so hang on tight.  Unfortunately this is a part of the healing process.  Just keep an eye on everything and check in with your doctor as needed.  

Your body will absorb a certain amount of fluid so no worries.  If your tummy feels like a waterbed then call the doctor and get in to have this checked.  Don't stress though, this is an easy fix if necessary.
