Silver Nitrate on incision??

After my C-section I had an area of my incision cauterized with silver nitrate...the itching can be a sign that the tissue is finally healing. If it continues or gets worse give your doctor a call. Hopefully it will now heal quickly.

Silver Nitrate on incision??

I had a LAVH 4/14/04 and have had to have silver nitrate used 3 times on one of my incisions. The first time it burned so bad, I could have sworn that the dr. was pouring hot lava in me. The other 2 times haven't been bad. I don't have the itching but about an hour after I am real sore in that area. I would call the dr. and ask if that is a sign of healing or are you having a reaction to it.

Good Luck

Silver Nitrate on incision??

I had an LAVH on 3/2 and had silver nitrate applied on granulation tissue in the navel as well on the vaginal cuff area. Both times it stung when applied and there was some itching afterward and then a blackish discharge. It lasted for a couple of days.
If you continue to have itching or pain in the area I would call the doctor.

silver nitrate

Hi Melinda!
I sent you a response via e-mail and PM. Let me know if for some reason you didn't get it.

My incision did the same thing. But if it continues for more than a few days, be sure and call your doctor!

Good Luck!
