As a veteran of four abdominal surgeries, my tummy winces in sympathy for you.
As NMG said above, if someone punched you in the eye, it would be swollen. That wouldn't mean your face had "gained weight". It takes a while for that inflammation to go away. Not just days. More like weeks. Really, your focus should be on healing right now. Put your scale away completely until you can to a whole flight of stairs two at a time.
