Bacterial Infection from internal stitches

That's the best way to find out, they just look under a microscope. I don't get the typical symptoms, I usually don't get much of a discharge or odor, just the irritation, "moisture", and puffiness. Then take an oral antibiotic and end up with a yeast infection! It seems to be never ending.....

Bacterial Infection from internal stitches


Once again, I am amazed at how I've found others experiencing the same thing I am dealing with.

About a week ago, I went to a Med-Check because of the terrible burning sensation I was having after I would void. They did a urine sample and said there was definitely allot of bacteria. They put me on a high dose of Cipro and a medicine that helps to the pain and spasms.

I honestly have seen only a partial reduction in symptoms, however I know have visable yeast externally and have a great deal of pain vaginally. I couldn't get in to see my surgeon or family doc today so I went back to the "doc-in-the-box". They said my urine was clear of bacteria and prescribed diflucan.

I've got so much pain in my genital area that I actually used an ice pack tonight.......although if you ever repeat this I'll deny it.

Fortunately I have an appt with the surgeon tomorrow.

Could someone give some specifics of how you would know the difference between a yeast vs. bacterial infection vaginally?

I did read that a lack of estrogen can be a cause of UTI's, especially when a woman has a reoccuring problem.

Are bacterial infections more common if you've had your cervix removed?

Thanks for your help! I'll let you know if I learn anything that might be helpful after I talk with the surgeon.

Here is what I was told. Four or five months post op I had cultures taken and I had both a yeast and a bacterial vaginosis. The doc said they had to be treated separately and to do one, then the next-it took almost 2 weeks to get them both treated-and no sex and no baths during that time. The culture showed him what antibiotic I needed to get rid of the bacterial one.

The gyn said that estrogen inbalances cause yeast infections.

Also in some cases your partner can have no symptoms and keep reinfecting you, so if they are reoccuring they need to be treated also.

I had not had either kind for a long time until the surgery.

I hope that you have good luck getting rid of them.

I haven't had any since I took care of them both in a row.

I didn't have any symptoms for the bacterial one, it showed up when they did the culture. I did have lots of itching, redness and the yeast one drove me nuts! After the bacterial one was treated though, I noticed I didn't feel as crampy. I think I was ignoring that one.

Bacterial Infection from internal stitches

It's sometimes hard to tell the difference if you don't get the discharge...
Yeast - itching, "cottage cheese" like discharge, no odor
Bacterial-burning, itching, yellowish discharge, "fishy" odor, especially after intercourse. I get a lot of "moisture", like sweating, with the bacterial vaginosis.
I've always been real sensitive and susceptible to infections and my doctor said I shouldn't have as many problems since having my cervix removed. I have both ovaries and am hoping now that the irritating stitch has made it's way out...after 3 months, that things will get better.
My ex mother in law used to swear that too much candida can reak havoc on your entire body and used to follow a candida cleansing regimin. Let me know if it helps!
My next step will be to pump my bf full of antibiotics! hehe

Bacterial Infection from internal stitches

OMG!!! When I went in for four week check doc said that my stitches didn't seem to be starting to dissolve. Instead of a six week check, he'll do eight to give it more time. My DH is getting very anxious to get on with what he likes about that part of me.

Funny, but not, I had a nightmare that they put in the wrong stitches and had to go in again to clip them
