what happens at the two week checkup

Hi i had a TAH with removal of one ovary and am scheduled next thursday for my two week checkup. I wondered if I will be checked internally also? Or is this just a "look at the incision" kind of visit? Sounds silly but I'm really curious.

I also had a TAH with one ovary removed. I had an appt one week after surgery where they just took out the staples and checked the incision. No pelvic exam. But I have another appt at 3 weeks where she'll do a pelvic and check the vaginal cuff.

Hi,

I had a 1 week check up to remove the staples and then a two week check up to remove the steri strips she had put on after the staples. They were both just quick visits to check the surgical scar on my abdomen and ask how I was feeling. I had my 6 week check up last week and that was a quick look -see internal that was painless.

I had my staples removed at one week, my incision checked at two weeks, and an internal at 3 weeks. It was quick, easy and painless.

Ladies,
For the routine two week check up, there is NO PELVIC EXAM. Nothing in the vagina for six weeks means nothing in the vagina for six weeks. My first vaginal exam was at the six week check up.

I had a TLH on 11/29/07 and the only thing that happened at my two week was the removal of the "glue" on my three incisions. It wasn't pleasant but it wasn't horrible either. The rest of the time my doc just confirmed that everything I was experiencing was completely normal.

It's not until the six week (or later) visit that your doc will do a pelvic. By the time my six week check came I didn't care about the pelvic exam because I was feeling much better and excited about getting the green light to resume "activities" with my DH.

Good luck and be well!

Okay, I am back from my 2 week check up. It was not too bad. He checked the incisions, pelvic exam and answered questions. Everything looks good. He even said I can resume baths. Woo hoo! He thinks at 4 weeks I can resume sex, if I am ready.

He and his staff were amazed at how well I am recovering which makes me feel really good. I was starting to feel quite down.

I had my 2 week post-op today. All my doc did was looked at the incision - had me get dressed - talked about how I was feeling. She did say about 10 times - NO LIFTING.

We talked about the pathology report and thats about it. There was no internal. She said I will come back in 3 - 4 weeks and then she will do a pelvic.
