6 week Post op Question

HI
This may be a dumb question, but I have my 6 weeks post op appt this Monday. Does the dr do an internal exam? Just curious as to how they will know everything is fine and I can resume "all" activities.
Thanks Cindy

Re: 6 week Post op Question

Most doctors do an internal exam somewhere between 4-8 weeks post-op, in order to view the cuff. That is the only way they can know whether or not to give you the "go ahead" on "all" activities.

Mine did an internal exam at six weeks. I agree that it is the way the doc can tell if everything is healing.

Re: 6 week Post op Question

Thanks, That's what I thought but was hoping they wouldn't as I had to have one at 2 weeks because my body has been rejecting the stitches.
Hoping that all goes well. Have a Great Weekend!

Re: 6 week Post op Question

As much as I dislike doctors looking down there, I was encouraging it every chance I had! I wanted to know if everything was ok and healing right. I was really worried about complications. At my six week visit the gyne just talked to me and answered all my questions, reviewed my pathology report. At 8 weeks he did an internal to check the cuff and look for scar tissue or granulation. If there are problems with the cuff he will treat that and not release you for sex and possibly other activities.

Re: 6 week Post op Question

Not painful but more uncomfortable than usual because you're still a little traumatized down there. I had my doc
Check me at 10 days, and that was very painful. I was so swollen she could hardley get the speculum in.

Re: 6 week Post op Question

I had an internal exam at 4 weeks (last Monday). It was very quick and very painless, she just checked to make sure everything was healing properly and told me to come back after the new year--I assume at that time I will be checked again.
