I went for a 13 week check-up and the doctor told me I have "granules" along my vaginal cuff scar. She describbed them as pink soft fleshy things, she swabbed them although it felt like she snipped something for biopsy. She said that reguardless of if it is benign or not they like to remove them surgicaly so scar tissue doesnt't build up in the vagina. Has anyone else experienced this? I feel like an alien! :confused: Also I am bleeding and have yucky grey stuff (silver something?) coming out of me. Doc says its ok as long as I don't fill more then one pad an hour, I never thought I'd see blood coming out of there again.

Hi PriscillaH!

I had granulation tissue, too. It's quite common and you are *not* an alien!! Your doctor probably treated it with silver nitrate and that's the discharge you're seeing. It should stop in a few days. Sometimes one treatment is enough but stubborn cases can take several. Eventually it will heal and you won't have to deal with it anymore.

I know it's discouraging to have to deal with bleeding/discharge again. Hopefully it will soon be a thing of the past!
