Polyp / Granulation

Well after being treated for my bladder infection I still had a discharge and went to the local clinic and after urine sample given another antibiotic...after that still discharge so back ty gyno and she examined me today and said that I had a polyp and treated me with silver nitrate. The procedure was painless. I also had cellulitus at my 6 weeks post-op and had to go on flagyl for that.

Is a polyp the same thing as granulation as she treated it with silver nitrate?

Even though I have had some post-op problems I feel great as far as my energy goes.

I am going back to see her in 3 weeks and crossing my fingers that this whole thing will be behind me.

Thanks for listening.

Polyp / Granulation

Hi Kathryn,
I had vaginal polyps removed several years ago. They were put in a see through plastic container that had some type of clear fluid in it. My polyps were beign. I think polyps are an abnormal growth of tissue (more like tumors) and granulation is more like scar tissue (from healing wounds). I don't remember my ob/gyn apply silver nitrate after removing the polyps. I do remember bleeding for two months straight. I am a very slow healer.

However my surgeon a couple of weeks ago cut out mesh from my prolapse repairs that I had with my TAH and TVT sling. After she did that she applied silver nitrate.

Hope you are feeling better and get a good report at your next visit.

Take Care.
