Welcome to the Forum. As the others have said, expecting good results the same day the catheter is out, is a little premature. It normally will take 4 to 6 weeks or even longer for all the swelling to go down internally, the cuts and stitching to heal and things to find their place in the new abdomen to really know what the situation is. Lots of swelling now obscures what will be the actual condition. Hang in there and be patient. I know, hard to do and easy to say...
