Polyp after Hysterectomy (6 months post-op)

Hi,

I was wondering if any one out there has had this same issue.

I am 6 months post-op and have just recently started bleeding after intercourse (no pain during, just the bleeding and cramping after.) The second time this happened (bled heavier and longer) I called and made an appointment.

Doc said I have some tissue that has prolapsed from the vaginal cuff and a polyp that needs to be removed. Not sure if the prolapsed tissue became a polyp or if I am just lucky enough to have both.

I have not had a polyp removed before and I am nervous about it. It was very uncomfortable during the exam when she touched it with the q-tip thing (felt kind of like an small electric shock each time) and I bled pretty heavy the rest of the day after the appointment. She told me that they don't give anything for the proceedure because it is "over before you know it" and the pain is "just like ripping off a band-aide." (Can't seem to wrap my brain around that one!) I am also told that there is cramping and bloating afterward but not much else.

I can't help but feel that this is going to hurt because it was so uncomfortable during the exam. Told the ultrasound tech that if I can't have a valium before hand I am going to take a leftover Lortab with a shot of vodka before I come in.

I also hope that this will explain (and erase) the cramps and soreness I have for a few days after my DH and I are together.

Thank for listening

Are they sure it is a polyp. It sounds similar to prolapsed fallopian tube. Did you have yours removed? I'm probably wrong but maybe just ask or look into it. Either way good luck and let us know how you make out.

Hi Hope09.

I did have my tubes removed. But if I hadn't that would be a good question to ask. I guess I just didn't think anything could prolapse because nothing is left and I have a cuff. I won't have any answers until Oct. 1st but will post once I am back home after the appointment.

Good luck with everything. I hope the visit goes well and the procedure is swift and painfree.

I am 4 months post op and had one too. I didnt know I had it until I said OUCH during a follow up exam and the Dr. said he clipped off a polyp. He explained that where the uterus was removed that tissue gets confused and sometimes grows weird. (my terms of course). He sent it out for pathology, pretty sure it wont be anything, after talking to him.

Hi czangel -

I used to get polyps on my cervix prior to my hysterectomy. My gyn would clip them and it hurt a little, like the Ouch mentioned. I would spot a bit, wore a pad for the day. So not a lot of bleeding and I would cramp a bit.

Hugs

G.

I wanted to apologize for not posting sooner. I had to reschedule my appointment for the 1st of November because my daughter became ill with the flu.

I will be back next month...

Ok, went to my appointment on the 5th and the doctor said she couldn't see anything anymore. Looks as though whatever was there healed on its own while my DH and I stayed away from each other.

Very nice surprise!!
