Labia swelling - post.op 7 days

Is swelling of the labia normal? Also my left upper inner thigh is sore. Is this a cause for concern?

You are very early post-op. It isn't unusual to have swelling. The upper thigh pain can come from the positioning during surgery too.

However if this is different from what you were told to expect by yoru surgeon, make sure you call.

I had that swelling. It eventually goes away. Hang in there! It probably won't be that way much longer.
