What heals quicker - internal or external?

What healed quicker for you - internally or externally? My incision does not really hurt but I really hurt inside and when did your pain start to subside?

What heals quicker - internal or external?

I had my 6 week post op visit with my DR. last Wednesday, and she said the external stitches take less time to heal. Also, that there are hundreds of internal stitches. I had an LAVH with cervix removal, still have ovaries, due to cancer. I asked this question to her because I was curious as to how many internal stitches I had, as well as how long they take to heal 100%.

As for pain, I have some days ay 8 weeks post op with no pain, and others with mild to moderate pain. My first pain free day was exactly 5 weeks post op.

Hope you heal fast and feel great soon. Take my advice...DON'T DO TOO MUCH TOO SOON!!!!!

My external incision is completely healed (well, I know from experience the scar will shrink and change texture over time, but its fully closed), and not painful at all, but I still have a lot of internal pain at nearly 5 weeks. How quckly you heal will depend on your procedure, and also on your physical condition entering surgery, and just whether you naturally heal easily (I, sadly, am a slow healer.)
