Vaginal Swelling - What is your vagina supposed to feel like?

Okay....I'm one week post-surger (tlh), and I kind of feel like I have a tampon in that needs to be "pushed up" just a little bit. I joked about vaginal prolapse to my husband, then I googled vaginal prolapse (which freaked me out) and I have a doctors appointment tomorrow, and am now wondering (after doing more research here) if what I'm feeling is my vaginal cuff still swollen. My bowel movements have been fine....I have not pushed or strained, and I don't think I've lifted anything that could have been a problem> I've followed the "vaginal rest" requirements from my doctor.....I don't have any pain or bleeding.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

I THINK it sounds normal, but I am happy that you have an appt tomorrow. I totally thought he put in vaginal packing, but he hadn't, it was just the crazy swelling.
I'm sure some of our other sisters will be along to help too. And let us know what happens after the appt!!!

Vaginal packing is exactly what it feels like. I'm glad I have an appointment too, and that they are so flexible getting me in. Will let you know the outcome. Thanks for replying....I'm surprised at how helpful this site is. I'm not one to usually post on a blog....but am pleased at how helpful and supportive everyone is.

Could just be swelling. I got brave and took a mirror to see what's up down there. Oh boy. LOL Things are still bruised down there even a week later. I'm not sure what I thought it would look like, but other then not seeing a cervix any more I didn't see any changes.

Good luck at the Dr hopefully it's nothing major.

I had the same feeling as you starting a few days out from the surgery. I t ended up being the vaginal cuff going through the healing process. My doctor told me that for it to be a vaginal prolapse you would also feel a huge amount of pressure. I hope that the cuff healing is all it is for you as well! Good luck at your doctors appointment!

Re: Vaginal Swelling - What is your vagina supposed to feel like?

hi, did you ever get an answer on your initial post? i have the exact same feeling! I am 2 weeks post op and it started a couple of days ago. I described it exactly the same way as if a tampon is just not quite in there properly ...I am thinking it is the cuff and just healing..but then I just found out about vaginal vault prolapse and freaked myself out too! I had a TVH on 9/24...still spotting a little, yikes..I dont see my dr until nov 4 - he is a really good surgeon but I never asked if I needed other repairs like my bladder or anything else - dumb me..io am assuming that he looks at all that!
