The symptom of granulation is light post-op spotting. It's very light - pink in color, not red. And it is a very small amount.

My doctor explained that it is caused by tissue that is healing in a very moist area (vagina). It never quite gets dry enough to heal completely.

I called him when I still had the symptom 4-weeks post-op. He told me that it is very common and that if it is still present when I go for my six-week post-op then he will treat it will chemical cauterization. I still get it - it's usually a spotting in the morning and others if I overdo But usually it's just one or two spottings in day.
