Good Morning,

I had my TAH/BSO on Oct 1/03, found out at my 6 week check that I had Cervical Cancer. Carcinoma in situ. Gyn told me the margins were clear and everything was fine.

I asked for a pap at my 8 weeks, but he said it was too early.
I go back in May for a pap.

Hubby and I have had relations twice now. Now this weekend I have a sore outside the vagina and it is burning alot. I am not dry by any means. I am also have some pelvic pain. Not alot, but I am aware it's there.
I keep telling myself I am still healing, but am scared I might have an infection and don't want to have anything else go wrong.

I am now 4 months post op. Should I go to my family doctor?
Wait and see how I feel? My gyn takes like 2 months to get into. Should I wait and see him?

Any advise!

Thank you,

I'm sorry you are having problems. I would suggest that you call your gyn's office first--this morning. The sore could be something as simple as a cyst, boil, or infected hair follicle, but it should be looked at. As far as pelvic pain, well, if he is the one who did the surgery, then he should be the one to follow-up on any possible problems. don't feel bad about calling him--that's what he's there for. Most docs keep a certain number of appointments available for "sick" calls during the day. Let them know you are having a problem and need to see him.

If for some reason you don't have any luck, absolutely call your family doc. You can get that sore looked at and if your doc is concerned about your other symptoms, then a simple phone call from him will probably open up an appointment for you with your gyn.

Good luck! Please come back and let us know how you're doing! I'll be 'ing for you today!
