just a little bummed out

Went to see the doctor today for a 10 week check. At 6 weeks he said I looked well-healed every place but my posterior vaginal wall where he removed the VAIN 3. I went back today, and it's still not fully healed. I've been thinking it's still kind of tender, but I was hoping that I was just paranoid and it really was OK. I can resume most of my work activities, and exercise is at least OK now, but still no sex! He started me on some hydrocortisone cream for 10 days to see if that will help. I'm also using Vitamin E topically. Robynb mentioned Vitamin A. Any other suggestions? I'm starting to get concerned. It seems like this is taking a long time to heal, and I'm afraid that more of those cells are interfering with the healing process. Doctor said he can't do a smear for another 2 months because there's a fair chance it will be abnormal anyway from all the recent procedures. I'm so frustrated!

Guess I just needed someone to talk to. Thanks for listening, and for all of your support these past weeks. Where would a girl be without her sisters?

Oh Jeanine ((((( hugs)))) to you my friend. I was so hoping things would have been better today for you. This is what my herbalist said to take for healing . Lots of vitamin C, this helps with tissue repair. Of course this is my own opinion and you should check with your DR. Please email me if you need to talk or maybe we can catch up again online. Will keep you close to my heart. love always

My gyn told me to take VitaminC to help in my healing process also.
Please don't get discouraged. We all heal differently and some of us take longer than others. It can be very frustrating but we need to be patient.
It was a good idea to come here and type to us. It is amazing how much better you will feel when you can get your feelings out to people who you know really care...and we do care!!
We are always here, so type type type!

Zinc might help. It's specifically used by the body in healing wounds. Can't hurt if you take around 30 mg.

Of course general good nutrition and all those good things like walking and lowering stress. {{{jeannine}}} of course you're bummed!

Thanks for the support and ideas. I forgot about Zinc. I'll go out this weekend and get some. I was doing Vitamin C, but maybe I'll go back up a little in dosage (I was doing 3000 before surgery, I've dropped back to 2000). I've started the hydrocortisone and I'm alternating that with the Vitamin E and A oils so I get everything twice a day. My personal areas have never gotten this much attention! I call the doctor tomorrow just to check in, and then again at the end of next week to see if I need anything stronger (I really prefer not to go the steroid route). Thanks once again!
