9 mo (almost) post op and polyp

I'd posted a month or so ago about having some light pink bleeding. When I went to the doc, I ended up having to see the nurse practitioner as my doc had been called away on an emergency. NP did an exam, couldn't find anything, gave me some vaginal cream to use for seven days, and scheduled me for a 3 week follow up.

Fast forward to today. I saw my doc for the follow up. The cream didn't do a thing for me. She did what was probably the most thorough pelvic I've ever had, and it turns out I have a polyp at the top of my vagina. Hard to believe something that small could cause so much pain when pushed on!!!

Anyway, she ran a Pap on it to rule out the "C" word and will call as soon as she gets the results. Trying to stay calm, but would be lying if I didn't admit to being nervous. She did remind me that my pathology was fine after surgery in August, and it was unlikely something would change so fast.

Either way, the polyp will have to come out, but we didn't get into too many details on that today. I imagine it will be done right in the office with a local.

If anyone has had a similar dx, I'd love to hear your story...

Bottom line, if something doesn't feel right - it probably isn't right, so call your doc and get it checked out. We know our bodies better than anyone.

1st question--Didn't you have a TAH? where is this polyup?

I had a polyp at the top of my uterus. It completely filled my uterus. For me I was finished having children and made the decision to have my uterus removed. IM SO HAPPY I DID...

Yes, I had a TAH last August. The polyp is at the top of my vagina, and is a little larger than a pea.

really? well I learn something new EVERYDAY!....I didn't know that they could grow other places besides the uterus..


This is what I found on WebMD:
How are they treated?
The most common treatment is removal of the polyp during a pelvic examination. This can be done simply by gently twisting the polyp, tying it tightly at the base, or removing it with special forceps. A solution is applied to the base of the polyp to stop any bleeding.

Good Luck...Keep us/me upto date on whats going on.

I had a polyp on my cervix that was discovered about 6 weeks before my hysterectomy during an exam. I was having a lot of bleeding and it turned out to be one of several things internally causing bleeding. The gyn. doing the exam just said it matter-of-factly "you have a polyp" and snipped it off right then during my exam! There was no pain or anything, just a pinch. She told me it must have been "old" as it came right off and usually they didn't! However, there was no pain but I did have another spurt of bleeding afterwards I guess from it and other things going on inside. They sent it off and it was fine. It was not painful at all.
