painful vaginal cuff

I am about 8 1/2 months post op. I have a TAH... nothing was left. I am having severe pain radiating all around the area of the vaginal cuff. Especially while being intimate with DH. It is so bad, that I don't do it. And everytime I have tried, I bleed. I went for my last exam about 2 weeks ao, and bled for about 4 hours afterward. ( it was an internal). Occasionally I have spotting and it hurts for no reason in that area. Anyone else have this experience? Should I ask my Dr about it? I don't feel very informed about anything. I just now found what a vagonal cuff is, and that I must have one, because my cervix was removed. I feel a bit silly that I still have no clue what's going on. Anyways,hope someone can help me out.

Hi Tapnfeet,

I think it's worth a call to the Dr. You shouldn't have to go though that much pain and bleeding. Let us know what they say. Here's a big ((Hug)) for you!

If it were me, I would call and say :

"I am having pain with intercourse and spotting for no known reason (not necessarily tied to intercourse) and I bled/spotted (be specific about amount and duration) after your exam the other day. And, I am concerned about this"

Your doctor should want to examine you to find out what is causing this. You have more than enough symptoms to warrant attention.

Let us know what you find out ...otherwise we will just wonder!!!!

Lots of s Now, take a deep breath and call!!!!

painful vaginal cuff

I just went for my 1 yr checkup. The doctor examined me and said there was a small piece of tissue on the vaginal cuff that didn't heal the way it should and was hanging out (like a tag). She said it could cause bleeding during sex. She put some kind of medicine on it and was going to leave it to come off on its own, but she decided to lance it off as she said it could cause me some problems in the future. So it did hurt a bit but she got it out - it was a little small than the size of a dime.
