How can you tell the cuff is healed?

I am two weeks out tomorrow....and I assume my vaginal cuff is not healed. But, how do you know when it is? I see the doc for my two week tomorrow, will I see her again at 6 to see if it is healed? Could it be healed tomorrow?

I am still spotting here and there, light pink to brown.

I am so so afraid of the cuff and sex and just not being healed.

I am going to ask tomorrow, but how did you all know if your cuff was healed yet?

Thanks! :-)

My surgery was the day after yours. I'm pretty certain (although I'm no doctor) that it's not healed yet since the standard advice seems to be "nothing in the vagina" for 6 weeks.

The only way to ensure a vag cuff is healed, is by an old-fashioned visual inspection.

Most women take 6 weeks......but, we are all different. The best info I have seen......and shared with many.............are the "post-op guidelines" right here at hystersisters.

Take care.................s......Deb

it probably takes an average of 4-6 weeks. when you have your post op appt, the dr will take a look and see if its healed. i'd say as long as youre spotting, you definitely arent healed.

I would guess the only way to know for sure is to have the doc take a look. At my 5 1/2 week visit, I was healing very well, but still had a few internal stitches left.
