keloid scarring in vagina?

I'm getting a TAH 4/25. I tried to talk the Dr into leaving my cervix but her opinion was it needed to go. I get keloid scarring (bad) and I'm worried about getting it from the "cuff". I had 2 episiotomys - keliods from both made sex uncomfortable for months after "it" was allowed. What are my chances of getting scarring from the vaginal stitching? Is my sex life going to be over?

I have another appointment before surgery, and I will be bringing this up with her. Has anyone out there had this problem?

Never mind - got question answered

Had a urologist appointment today - he says that keloids don't form on vaginal type tissue - it takes surface skin to make them and that I don't have anything to worry about. What a relief.

I answered you yesterday during a SLLOOWW period on here, and I guess something happened to my post because it's not here!

Glad you got your answer. I have a friend who gets keloids and they can be awful. That is a relief...can't imagine having it grow in there!!!
