Dr. appointment in 2 hours will I have an internal?

I am only 8 days post op and off to see the doctor for the first time. I surely hope this is just for a chat. I would hate to think I'd have an internal exam this quickly when I am still sitting on a donut.

How soon do they do an internal exam after a TVH?

I had a different type of surgery but yes, I did have an internal, very quick with the speculum (sp?) to check the vaginal healing. My appt was 10 days post op.

I'll say a quick prayer for you.

Oh my I'm having my 2 week post op visit in an hour also. Soooooo nervouse been running a fever for 3 days. I did speak to the Dr. at the time I didn't have any discharge just some pain on the right side. Now I have pain, discharge and it hurts like hell when I pee.

Wish me luck.....I really hope its not an infection.

I had a tvh. At my first post op visit(2 week) my doc used a speculum and peaked inside. It didn't really hurt it was just tender. She didn't do an internal exam as far as poking and prodding inside. At my 6 week post op she did the internal. I was really nervous, but it didn't hurt at all. Good luck. Just try to be relaxed and whatever your dr has to do will be o.k.

I had a TAH and did not have an internal exam until 6 weeks. Didn't hurt, but I was nervous too.
Good luck

No internal, she just looked at the stitches from the posterior repair.

It was a pleasant visit and the nurse said that I would be released to go back to work at 4 weeks and I just laughed. I've been retired for almost 9 years after teaching for 31. I said, just so I can get back to my canasta and my mah jongg. I know that I have the ideal life and that I live in paradise and I am grateful for that every day.

I go back in 4 weeks and have to stay out of my formal exercise classes until I am 12 weeks post op because of the prolapse repair and my age. Gosh, no crunches for 11 more weeks by doctor's orders. I think I'll cry.

I can drive now and I can use the treadmill if it is too cold to walk outside. I am very happy.

The mouth ulcers are most likely just from stress. They are improving so I am not concerned about them any more.

Oh, I forgot to ask about the tub baths too. I love my tub.

I'll just continue to shower only until I see her again in 4 weeks. I rushed it after my first child was born and got an infection. I took three or four baths a day because that was the only relief I could get from all of my stitches. I sure remember those problems and I don't want them again.
