vaginal cuff repair--recovery time?

I went in for my 6 week appt. today and the doctor said that I had tiny tears at the vaginal cuff. He used silver nitrate to cauterize the area. Anyone else have this done? What's the recovery time???

Re: vaginal cuff repair--recovery time?

My doctor told me cuff takes 8 weeks to heal after LAVH/BSO so no sex, nothing in vagina for 8 weeks.

I am not sure if you had sex and it caused the tiny tears or maybe you lifted or strained.

I do know that sometimes the stitches can dissolve to soon or the area still has a bleeder so the use the silver nitrate on the areas that has not healed.

You really need to ask your doctor about intercourse or any lifting or straining and about "your" healing time since he is the one who just examined you and knows for sure. The rest of us are just guessing.

Sorry I could not be of more help
