Vaginal Cuff????

I know this may be a silly question...but....i had a TVH and bladder sling on Feb1st. I have been reading posts about"vaginal cuffs" and I don't know what this is! My doctor has NO bedside manner and does not like questions even tho i do ask it's always one word answers. Also....I have 2 on each side on my inner thigh...close to the vaginal area.....i discovered them while i was in the hospital going to the bathroom...i felt something and thought it was maybe matted blood or hair left from surgery and I PULLED on it!!!! OMG So, i asked the nurse and she casually replied...oh those are your stitches from the bladder more explanation...same with my does anyone out there know what I am talking about?

Vaginal Cuff????

A vaginal cuff is done when the cervix is removed. If my doctor had not sat down with me and answered all of my questions in detail, I would not have let him operate on me. I'm the type that WILL have answers! LOL

Go to the top of the page and search "vaginal cuff" and you can read the posts for vaginal cuffs. You can also use the search for bladder repairs. That should help you out. Also, if it was my doctor that gave me short answers, which he did at one point, I told him simply that this is my body and my health we are talking about here so I really would like your undivided attention. That seemed to work well and now we have a great relationship. Hope things work out for you.

Hi Beccaj5, I had my doctor draw me a picture of what was where. Maybe you can have him do that at your follow-up.I had never heard of a vaginal cuff either- until I found the hyster-sister website. I have learned a whole new vocabulary. Take good care of yourself :-)
