Hi sisters.

I read a few posts here on granulation.

How do you know if you have it? What are the symptoms?

I have had a problem free recovery, but was just wondering if this granulation is common and how would I know if I had it?

Thanks and happy healing...

My doctor discovered I had granulation when he did the internal exam at 6 weeks psot-op. I had been having a very light pink discharge from weeks 2-6 pos-top. Continued spotting can be a sign of granulation. However, it is possible to have granulation without having any "symptoms".

I had no symptoms, but I am not sure if I had granulation or not. The doc described it as a "drawing down of the tissue over the stitches". It was in my lower vagina where the rectocele repair was done.

It was treated with silver nitrate twice, and then some other stretching and pulling it apart .

I think the internal exam is the way to tell, there isn't anything you can do to prevent it as far as I know. The doc said that it is just the way some people heal and their tissue reacts to incisions.

My DR found mine at the 7 week visit with the internal exam. He explained it to me as basically a scab type thing. I went back two weeks later and it was smaller, but still there. At that visit he did the silver nitrate treatment. I go back again this Friday and am hoping it will be healed up, but I'm not holding my breath. Painful sex this week has me discouraged, although my DR warned me it could cause some pain. I'm starting to think it may take forever! I hope not though.

I didn't have any symptoms from it. After each visit with the internal exams I have had some crampy feelings and some pink discharge for a day or so.
