6 week check-up, but no internal is that normal?

I had my six-week check-up and all my doctor did was look at my scar and put me on Premarin. Should I have had an internal? Glad I didn't - but now I'm wondering if I should have as I have an awful lot of back pain and I still suffer from pain on my right side.

I have not made it to my three week much less my six week, but my best suggestion is to talk to our doctor. I would call and ask about all the things you have mentioned. They won't know if you don't tell them, or make sure they give you an answer that will comfort your mind.

Good luck.

I didn't have an internal exam at six weeks either, but I don't think it was a typical check up. She had just come from the hospital and was called back just minutes later. My hormones were changed and I'm to go back in a month.

SPEAKING OF....I HAD MY 5 WEEK CHECK UP TODAY. HE DID AN INTERNAL. SAID I WAS DOING GREAT AND THAT I COULD RESUME ALL MY NORMAL ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING SEX. HE DIDN'T TELL ME TO MAKE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT, SO I'M ASSUMING THAT HE RELEASED ME AT THIS POINT. HAD TAH/BSO 10JAN01 AND I AM ALMOST 38. THIS SEEMS A LITTLE SOON TO ME. ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS?

Hi Pjames,
I had my 5 week exam today. I received the same news, that I could resume activities as I felt I could. Unless I have any other problems I don't need to see the doctor til next year.
Good luck to you. I'm looking forward to getting in to the swing of things.
Peace and Good Healing to All,
Deeeee TAH/BSO 1/9/01

Had my seventh week today, could not find time for 6th week, ah, well, I am discharged, YES, I had an internal, and my stitches on top (wherever that is)still have not dissolved, but he said I can do whatever...and come back in a year for internal, ovaries, etc.
If the vagina is sewn shut, how can he feel for the ovaries????

Hi sisters,

Just a word of advice...when the Dr. says that you may resume normal activities, don't go at them like you've never been away. Ease back into it slowly. This is especially true with any strenuous activity that you took part in pre-op. Build back up to your previous level gradually.

My very best to you...

Linda
