I am having pinching pain in the cuff area and it feels like a bladder infection. I have been to the doc and he has put the silver nitrate on the cuff four times. He also put me back on antibiotics. He thought I might have a infection because of the pinching pain. But that has not worked. I wonder if anyone else has this pinching pain? I feel so uncomfortable I started taking lortab again. This pain begain about three weeks ago. I am worried.
I had some shooting pains, and recurrent bladder infection with shooting pains there, but not the pinching feeling you describe.
Since you've had 4 silver nitrate treatments you obviously have seen your Dr. fairly frequently. It sure must be frustrating to still feel this way.
If you feel like you might have a urinary tract infection I'd call tomorrow to have your Dr. check that out and re-examine you. Maybe explain that you have not received any relief so far, and ask if there might be another suggestion to help you feel more comfortable. Did you feel pain or discomfort when you had the nitrate treatments? Most times the treatment is not uncomfortable, but some women do feel pain and sensitivity with the granuation of the vaginal cuff. (I had exquisite tenderness when the granulation was touched.)
I'll things will start to improve for you soon.
7 weeks post op TAH LSO and still have cuff pinching pain
that makes me crazy and keeps me up at night. I take
nothing for pain as the narcotics make me sick and
Motrin kills my gut & stomach. Dr said I had a
little granulation tissue & used silver nitrate 2 weeks ago
but said all was healing well. I see him again in
2-3 days. I feel your pain!
