hormone question

I'm post-op from second surgery. (First surgery: anterior/posterior repair and TOT. Second surgery was to repair the first surgery.) Now I'm showing three small new openings in the incision!! The doctor hopes that premarin cream will aid in healing these places. Can anyone recommend the best kind of estrogen cream? If the tears/ openings don't heal, I'm facing a third surgery!

Re: hormone question

Hi writinggal Well, imho it depends on whether you're looking for something for short-term healing versus long-term maintenance.

For help with healing from surgery, nothing beats Premarin cream. I used it when I had a vaginal repair surgery after my hysterectomy and it really helped with healing. However, it's pretty messy, and I had to wear a panty liner while I was using it.

For long-term maintenance, I like Vagifem best. It's not a cream, though - it's a tiny tablet of estradiol prepackaged in a thin plastic applicator that you insert. It's mess-free and very easy and convenient to use, making it very appealing if you need to use something over the long term, but it's not nearly as "strong" as Premarin cream.

I hope this helps.

Re: hormone question

Linda,
Thank you so very much for writing. You've really made my day, because I have lost faith in my doctor. Anyway, I'm on Premarin, and nice to know it's good stuff. I'm praying now that I will heal the 3 tears in the incision line and not have to have a 3rd surgery!!
I guess if used over a period of three months, the Premarin can sometimes fill in the torn places. I hope I'm one of those statistics!!
Thanks again,
writinggal
