I am 3 weeks post-op from TVH. Have really been feeling good, except yesterday paid for overdoing it on Tuesday,learned my lesson and stayed in bed all day. I can sympathize with the other sisters who say they are going stir crazy, I know I am.
My question is when does the discharge usually stop?
I went for a 2 week post-op check-up with my Dr. last Friday. He asked me about the drainage, I told him it wasn't bad: not enough for a pad but too much for a pantyliner. In other words, just enough to be aggrivating
. He examined me and cleaned around the sutures at the end of my vagina and told me he would prescribe something to help with the discharge.
I filled the prescription for Metr-gel and used it twice a day for 5 days as he instructed. Still had to wear pads of course. Woke up this morning and still had discharge on pad, looks like the beginning of a period.
All of you have been soooo helpful and supportive, you don't know how much this site and all of you mean to me.
I know that I can come here and express how I feel, and not have people turn their heads as if to say "My God, does her life revolve around having had a hysterectomy?"
Irritated that I feel like I should be doing so much more than I am.
Thanks so much for everything,
