6 Week Check Up Report, Whew!

Hi Ladies!

Today was my first internal exam since my surgery. I found it slightly uncomfortable but then I have always had problems relaxing my muscles during the internal exam Anyway, MD says things look great. He swabbed the vaginal cuff with a bit of silver nitrate to aid the healing process and will see me again in 3 weeks. I was released to return to work next week and may resume sexual relations this weekend. Overall, I feel very good. I know that I could not have made it this far without the marvelous support and information on this board.

The hostesses are awesome. Thank you to all of you sisters!

Not healing after 6 weeks.

I recently had my 6 week checkup. I was told I was not healing as expected and noticed a considerable amount of blood under the scar which has not obsorbed back to the body. I was told to take 2 to 3 20 min. baths a day and if that did not help we would use the nitrate. I still feel uncomfortable walking or sleeping on my side. My scar is very sensitive and alot of swelly belly. Has any one else experienced this?
