Is there anyone here that didn't have a painful 6 week post hysterectomy visit and granulation treatment?

6 week visit is coming up next week and I am very nervous reading about painful 6 wk visits and possible granulation/silver nitrate treatments. I have several other types of surgeries all leading to excessive amounts of scar tissue. With the discharge (pale yellow but not foul, no pain) not slowing down and history of scar tissue issues, I am afraid I am heading toward that direction. Is there anyone here that didn't have a painful 6 week visit and granulation treatment? I have had several intrauterine biopsy that were not fun. Guess I just need to read some of positive type posts before I really work myself up! lol....Call be a big sissy!

No pain, no treatment at my 6 wk. Dr. said all looked fine but I was "still healing" and a few stiches left. Surprisingly ok'd me for sex, but at 10 wks. I'm still scared...

No pain but I did have a silver nitrate treatment, didn't hurt at all. Didn't have to go back after that.

No pain! No granulation! No scar tissue! My 6 weeks was absolutely perfect. I just had my 1 year post op and my surgeon said i have healed 100% perfectly!

I haven't had my 6 week post op yet but I have had to have a silver nitrate treatment in the past for another bleeding issue up in the vagina. You can't feel it at all.

As for the speculum.....I have a lot of pain anyway with those things but my doctor is mindful of it. We get through whatever.

I worried for a greater amount of time than my actual exam took. I understand your concerns.

My internal exam was uncomfortable - but It wasn’t as bad as my pre-surgery checkup which was horrid! So I was pleasantly shocked. I did not need any treatment to my cuff - so that was a relief.

Perhaps take an otc pain med and something for anxiety before your exam. After your exam, plan on spending the rest of the day relaxing with a good movie or book. Treat yourself to your favorite comfort food.

Best of luck.

I didn’t have a 6 week check up, my doc didn’t want to see me until week 11.5. I did have clearish discharge up to that point. I did have a lot of granulation (my doctor so graciously informed me-the most she’d ever seen) I had silver nitrate and it was just a little uncomfortable, I could feel it. NOTHING like the uterine biopsies (ugh!). More like a pap, but not as sharp feeling, it’s just applied with a long q-tip. I did have a grey, sparkly discharge for a few days after that, then much drier, for which I was grateful. I admit, I was very anxious when she spoke of how much granulation there was, but in hindsight, the treatment was quick and nothing to be afraid of.
Try not to worry

I have had to have vaginal biopsies in the past and those things were difficult. They numb you but still..... That's how I learned about the silver nitrate. I had one that just would not stop bleeding.
