Swollen Pubic Area

Hi ladies..I've been extremely swollen since surg 07/31/12. Kind of embarrassing, but I have massive swelling in pubic. Now the sides of my lady parts and swollen too. I'm not talking about a little swelling. I'm talking can't hardly walk and feels like skin is going to burst open. Called dr and they said nothing to worry abou. Ughhh!! I've just keeping ice packs on this area. Just wondering if anyone else has/had this? Thank you

Hi Paxton88, I'm 13 days post-op and tho I had some swelling dwn there, which IS normal but it was nothing like what ur describing. I would call my dr if i was u and schedule a office visit.
Somethings can only be seen then described. U could be having an allergic reaction.
It wouldn't hurt to have it checked.

Re: Swollen Pubic Area

I also have a very swollen pubic area 4 days after a Davinci hysterectomy, but it is only on one side and there is a huge bruise on my inner and outer labia. I'm assuming it was due to it possibly being a leverage point when they had to struggle with getting my huge uterus out vaginally.

Re: Swollen Pubic Area

I agree with Cat5507. I would ask to be seen.
I remember being swollen like that once in my life and that was due from an infection.

Good Luck.. Hope you feel better soon.

sorry to hear this i had the same thing it does go away but is painful none theless. Ice does help it is important to take it easy and let your body heal.

Re: Swollen Pubic Area

Hi ladies, spoke to gyn/onc today. He said it is normal. Shamcd...mine is labia on the right side too. I also had a bruise that covered the front part two's after surgery. The bruise is gone but the swelling is not. Its comforting to know others have this too. Everybody keeps telling me stay active and swelling will go away. Well I find the more I walk the bigger it gets. I'll just have to keep hoping it will go away soon. Thanks again
