Just venting.

Sat. was my 7 months PO date. I literally had a breakdown on Sun. night after yet another failed attempt to have sex with my dh. 7 months and of the past 60 days I've bled 39. That just can't be right! My GYN is just being a jerk and being so done with me. I'm to the point where I really don't want him fixing me anymore.

My dh finally opened up with his frustrations. He's taking what I would say is a male view and he wants to blame someone and that someone better do something! I honestly don't think my GYN did anything wrong. But something is wrong with the nerves in my whole area.

The first sensation I had of pain when I woke up was when they were adjusting my binder or something and someone lightly touched my clitoris. I yelped in pain. They thought it was from my incision I guess and I was too embarrassed to tell anyone that was where it hurt the most.

By 4 weeks PO I had such severe vulva burning and pain. My GP dx me with vulvodynia and that's still a big problem. I'm taking 10 mg of Nortriptyline and that is helping some, however it also causing urinary retention. I was taking 20 mg but cut back. I am not having my 2nd uti since starting that med. I think this must be uti 9 since surgery.

So between the uti's, the vulvodynia pain, the constant bleeding, and bulging which I think is a rectocele, I'm a mess. I'm seeing my GP today and a urogyno tomorrow.

I thought by this far our po I'd be normal again.

I had lost 85 lbs. before my surgery and at least my weight is staying in check and I am exercising everyday regardless of the pain. I need to be in control of something!

Thanks for listening and sorry for babbling.

I am so sorry for all you are going thru. I hope that your DH lets go of his issues and sees that you are doing all you can. Men do process emotions differently. Come here all you want and keep us posted on how you are doing. We care.
