vaginal stricture

Hello sisters,

I have been struggling with a vaginal stricture caused by an overly aggressive perineorrhaphy done at the time of my hyst. It was 4 months before I was able to stretch my vagina enough to have intercourse. Now I have a web of tissue at the back part of the opening of my vagina. It's not really painful but it's very uncomfortable during sex and especially for a couple days afterwards. I have been referred from doctor to doctor, and the one I'm seeing now had me use a dilator for a month, which just made the area itch and burn and made it more numb than it already was (like novacaine wearing off at the dentist). He is now recommending surgery to remove the web of tissue. I don't know what to do. If anyone has been through anything like this, I would love to hear whether you benefitted from surgery. My goals are to relieve the discomfort during and after sex, and hopefully to get back some normal sensation.

One thing I would be asking if I were you is how many of these surgeries the doctor has done? If not many, you might want to consult a plastic surgeon. This sounds very delicate and I'd think you'd want someone very specialized so that you don't have any further issues.

Just my opinion. Good luck to you and do keep us posted!!
