6 week check up good news/bad news

Well, hello again ladies. It has been a while since I have been on and posted anything, but for those who I have chatted with, I had my check up. Good news is, I am "healing nicely", no damage to visible see from all my overdoing it. However, Dr. says I look to only be healed at about 4 weeks instead of almost 8. He is concerned, and told me take it easy over the next two weeks, no lifting , so sex. He doesn't like that I still have tender spots or the pain when I pee. Doing a urine test. again. Anyway, I spotted a bit after the exam and have been quite sore since, but I am trying to take it easy. Easier said than done at this point. If I am not better by the end of the month he wants to see me back. Anybody else have a check up like this?

Hi ,

I was very slow healing and it took me longer than most. I had unhealed vaginal cuff which took some time.

Hopefully with rest and more time to heal, you will be much better in a few weeks.

Hang in there

If you dont mind asking where are you tender at, internally or externally? And when you pee what kind of pain do you have? I'm just wandering if we're similiar w/those problems!

I wouldn't worry about it either. There are always textbook gauges to go by, but everybody heals differently.

poorhouse, I have had similar problems. The stitches in my vaginal cuff tore once at week 2 and then sometime after. I am leaking peritoneal fluid (that feels like urine - but it isn't) and after waiting forever to granulate, we are going to restitch the cuff again (3rd time is a charm?). My doctor does not actually have me backing off from anything (I am working full-time and running again) - and it has gotten any worse ... so that is good. One thing that I had tried was to take vitamin C (about 1,000 mg/day) and zinc ... they are both have some anedotal evidence to suggest they help stregthen your immune system.

Good luck, take it easy!!

JYN2006, HEY THERE. Sorry about taking so long to reply to your questions. I am tender internaly, around where the stiches of the ovaries and on the vag cuff. It feels like constant flow cramps and brusing from the outside. It is a bit worse since the internal. As for peeing, my bladder hurts when it is getting full, but I can't hold as much as before without hurting. When I pee, it is a stabbing pain, mostly at the end of the stream. It helps when I "hold" on to my tummy when I pee. Dr. wants a clean catch sample to check for infection, other Dr. gave me a perscription for Amitrip..... some kind of drug to help with "IC", but I haven't filled it yet, we'll see I guess. What is going on with you.

poorhouse-thanks 4 responding! My pain was externally and is finally going away. 2 through 5 weeks i experienced pain when urinating and my bladder wasnt holding near as much! As i was finishing or right before i finished i had the pain and like you said i could hold on to my stomach and it was fine. It wasnt really a "stabbing" pain but i cant really explain it! The doc said that it was from the stitches around the bladder i suppose so when it got full then release all the urine it was shrinking .. so i guess just the stretching back and forth is what caused mine. I hope all is well with you!

JYN2006 - Sorry to hear that you feel kinda yucky too , but it is nice to know that someone else feels like me and that I am not losing my mind. I asked Dr. about how the surgery was done, he said once it is removed they pull every thing together like a bag and stitch it, he said the cuff had 14 stitches, but I am unclear how it all comes out. I had a previous c section, which would have had scar tissue attached to my abdomen right?? Sooooo many questions I will ask when I go back. He said I would need to come back in a few weeks if I was still sore. I imagine I will be back.

poorhouse- Yeah it's not fun! My 6 week appt. was scheduled 4 tomorrow but b/c of the ice storm we've had i'm not getting out anywhere but it's rescheduled for wed. I can't wait to have it though just to see how i've healed. At my 2 week i was healed 90%. He released me for sex at 4 weeks but have yet to try it! What about you?
