3cm string coming out

Hello I am 3weeks post LAVH with A and P repair. Today I noticed a 3cm (ish) white string poking out of my vagina. I was having a slight itch 5 days ago and called the Dr. I thought it was a yeast infection, but now I see there is something working its way out. Can this be a stich or part of the material used for the repairs? No pain just concerned.

Re: 3cm string coming out

The string could be from either your repairs or your vaginal cuff. Do you have a call to your doctor specifically about the string? Try not to mess with the string.

Let us know what you find out!

Re: 3cm string coming out

I placed a call this morning to the Dr.'s office and was told by his nurse to come in and have it looked at. I'm planning to wait till tomorrow to go in. I'm hoping it will fall out and that it is not attached to anything. I'm afraid to have him look at it and especially not ready to go into stir-ups again and have him touch. I'll post again after the visit.

Hope it turns out to be nothing! Hope it falls off tonight and you don't have to go in to the doc's!

Don't be to scared of the stir-ups. I had a *vaginal inspection* at 2 weeks post op and it wasn't too terribly bad. Do have it checked out.

Hope everything is all good,

Did the Dr. use a speculum at your 2 week vaginal inspection? I'm afraid of that right now. I don't want to feel any pain.
