Pain & granulation tissue

Since My 6 mo checkup (its now 9 mo, since RAH-BSO), I've experienced some pain, not unlike a typical vaginal infection. Not great pain, but not too easy to ignore either. The gyn-onc did two biopsies of the vaginal cuff at the checkups, both showing granulation tissue.

The first time at 6 months, he treated with silver nitrate, but apparently it did not do the trick since I still had it at the 9 mo. check. He treated it with something else (which thank goodness, didn't burn like the first time but I forgot to get the name of it). However, it still hurts like it did before treatment. How long have others experienced this, and did the granulation tissue hurt? Its kinda funny, since, it really didn't start hurting until around the 7-8 month mark, and I didn't really have too much problem with pain during the inital healing, just an abdominal incision that was reluctant to close and stay closed.

I'd like to have other's experience with granulation and how long it took to get rid of it. At least the cancer is gone!

Pain & granulation tissue

You might try doing a search on granulation tissue.

I am glad the cancer is gone!!! At the same time, I'm sorry you continue to have pain.

granulation & pain

Roo62 (sorry I don't know your name)

The silver nitrate is used to cauterize the incision that is not healing as it should. From what I understand from the doctor, the formation of granulation is a step in the normal process of healing, but excessive tissue is formed if it doesn't stop when its supposed to. Whatever is supposed to "turn off" the granualtion doesn't happen so you end up with this tissue that is easily damaged. You wouldn't ordinarily be told about silver nitrate if everything is going as it should.

I've read quite a bit on the forum, but everyone's experience seemed real variable. I was wondering what was the longest did anyone have to deal with it. And when should I consider surgery? Are there any guidelines?
