Not sure why but everything below seems to itch and be swollen and I did not have a vag hyst I had an abdominal hsyt and things at incisiion site seem fine....not sure what this is has anyone had this before?...help...annie
I had some swelling in my perianal/labial areas postop, but not with itching. This is a good one to run past your surgeon. It is possible that you are having a skin reaction to some solution that was used to prep you.
Let us know, OK? Take care, Princess...............s....Deb
I'd advise you to see your doctor immediately. My labia were swollen after 3 days after my surgery, but without the itching; it seemed to just be part of the inflammation (my incision was infected, but I don't think the vaginal area was). But yours sounds more like a vaginal infection of some kind.
The sooner you get in touch with your doctor, the sooner you can get some relief!!!
Me too, 12 days in, woke up this morning with the wierdiest feeling. It felt like I had put in a tampax - incorrectly (sorry to sound so gross, but thats what it feels like) have made appointment to see doc tomorrow as the feeling wont go away.Also very itchy
Had abdominal hyst also.
Will let you know.
Thanks sisters I am going to call my Dr in the am.....this feeling is driving me nuts...maybe I am just doing too much and causing some swelling..not sure but thinks so much for the input....as always you guys make me feel better......hugs always annie
I don't think that doing too much would make you itch and swell THERE! I'm willing to bet it's a yeast infection. Hopefully not any kind of bacterial infection, but it's better to have the doctor rule that out, I think.
Thanks so much sisters my Dr called today he said the meds given to be before surgery cause yeast infections with many women and because I have never had one this must but what it does to me..he called in some Rx and hubby is going to get them this morning...hugs to all and thanks again....annie
forgot all about my labia being ginormously swollen for days following sx; don't recall any pain - think I was numb there as well as my inner thighs. Couldn't wear panties for a week though (couldn't bend to get them on!!).
