Some women feel crampy and uncomfortable after having silver nitrate used on granulation tissue. I know I did! If you have the option of having someone go with you who can drive you home, I think that would be a good idea, just in case you don't feel up to it. Chances are you'll be fine, but I think it's better to go prepared.
I hope all goes well for you! Let us know after how you feel, okay?
From my perspective, I've found the treatments totally painless. I leave the DR's office and go straight to work. There is an icky discharge afterwards for a few days, which is my only complaint. Other than the complaint that I still have granualation.
I had my treatments and drove right back to work. A little crampy but not nearly as crampy as times gone by! The last time I knew i was going to have one and took motrin before I went and it really seemed to help.
Thanks all! You're the best.
Looks like I won't expect this to be the only treatment either (since so many of you had more than one) and will see it as a gift and be thrilled if it is )
Thanks for all of your help and advice. Good luck to each of you in your quest to be granulation tissue free as well.
Be sure that you check with your doctor about resumption of normal sexual activities. I realized I hadn't asked after my dr had left the room, so I had to find him again to ask--and it's a good thing I did, because I was surprised at the answer--a week!
