Granulation Tissue

I am going in for a second time in 2 months for granulation tissue to be burned off. Is this normal? I have bled now for 2 1/2 days, and have had alot of pelvic pain.

Also. I still have ovaries, and feel like I have a cycle still. Is this normal. No bleeding, just bloating and moodiness.

7 months out and ready for this to be over,

Granulation Tissue

Hi ((((Shannon)))) I'm so sorry that you're still dealing with these issues, this long after your surgery

While my granulation problem was effectively delt with with cauterization, at my post-op appointment, I know that they can sometimes be very stubborn. Some women have required one or two treatments of silver nitrate. Hopefully, this next treatment will be the last <keeping fingers crossed>

I also kept my ovaries and, unless they are in shock or shut down after surgery, you will cycle. I've experienced from serious PMS symptoms to very mild symptoms. I agree that all the bloating and cramping, without the flow, is a very strange feeling.

Sending tons of s your way. Please keep us posted.

Been there, done that!

So sorry to hear of your plight. I had a hysterectomy 10 yrs ago and had granulation complications. My 4-6 week post-op recovery turned into 10 before I was finally allowed to go back to work. And then, almost one year after the surgery I had vaginal bleeding. Imagine my surprise! Went in, and it was granulations again, so I had some pretty extensive silver nitrate cautery. Never had any more problems after that. Take heart, it'll be over soon, I'm sure.
My ovaries were removed at the time of the hyesterectomy, so I can't comment on your feeling of monthly cycles still continuing. Good luck to you!

Granulation Tissue


I'm 31 days post hysterectomy and still bleeding (not much but constant).
I'm having my 6 week check up this week (at 5 weeks because I'll be back teaching by six weeks).
My guess is I have granulation and will require silver nitrate treatment.
MY question is how do you feel after a treatment? Do I need my DH to drive me to my appointment? Hour and a half round trip.

Have you called your doc to let him know earlier that you were still bleeding? It is not normal for you to be bleeding that long after hyst and probably should have been taken care of sooner. I hope that everything is okay and that all you have to have done is the silver nitrate treatment and that it isn't anything else going on. Good luck.

Granulation Tissue

I thought having silver nitrate treatments was horrable. You can ask to have the spot numbed first. Last time the doc used some spray numbing stuff. I thought it was worthless and he said for me to ask for lidocane next time.

I had silver nitrate 4 different times over a 2-3 month period of time. The application of the silver nitrate did not hurt at all. The last time was the charm, apparently, as when I went in for a check up following the last application, the granulation was finally gone!
