I suspect you are having some bloating, not uncommon and not harmful. You may also have a little fluid retention and gas. You can take simethicone such as gas-x or mylicon but I suspect this will go down in time. Hormones can do funny things to you. Without bleeding or other problems, I suspect all is going as it should, but let your doctor know if other symptoms develop. Good luck in your recovery.
