Better word than "pouch"

After surgery on November 19, 2001, I was glad and thankful that the biopsies came back cancer free. However I was shocked that I had a complete surgical *******ion. The surgeon described the remnants of my sexual organs as a "little pouch". I could have easily vomited!!!!! Does anyone relate to my aggravation with this description. Are there any other words women are using? I just reread this post and I sound angrier than I thought I was. Phew! Appreciate any support. Bye for now, Halster

Better word than "pouch"

Gosh. How about "perfectly healthy, happy, normal vagina"?

I can't read the censored part of your note, and my brain is about done for the day (was hours ago, actually), but unless you had something unusual done, you should have exactly the same muscular, feeling, alive part you started with - not a "little pouch".

When doctors are less than thoughtful about their communications, I try to attribute it to the fact that they spent way to much time in med school working on their knowledge and technique, and very little learing how to deal with people. (We can hope, at least.)

A friend of mine puts it another way when talking about her hyst - says she took out the crib, but left the play pen.
