Post surgery bloating?

I had a major operation on my kidney nearly 2 weeks ago. All went well and I'm getting on well apart from being extremely bloated. I'm over 10 pounds heavier than the day of the operation and my tummy is enormous.

I expected not to be able to do clothes up on my waist where the incision is but tbh that bit is fine, it's the bit just under my waist that's the problem - so bloated and tender that it's impossible to wear anything like jeans or low waisted trousers. Even leggings are a struggle by the evening.

So has anyone else had bloating after abdominal surgery (or any biggish operation) and how long did it take to go away?
