What To Expect at 2 week F/up?

I am coming up on my 2 wk dr follow up exam and wanted to know if you ladies can tell me what to expect? Im kind of cringing at the thought of a painful pelvic exam. Is that too much to hope for????

My doctor only checked my external incisions and discussed my plans for hormone replacement and how I was feeling, it is the 6 week checkup that she will do full exam.

Blessed2know, at my 2 week exam, my doctor did look inside. It was not painful. He did not poke around in there, simply looked. It was not bad!!

Mine didn't examine me at two weeks either. He says he doesn't want to mess with it while it's still healing unless I was having a problem. I sure was relieved!
I did get examined when I went at 7 weeks.

Mine too was an examination of the incisions and no physical exam. They answered all my questions so do think about what you are wondering / would like to know. I too was glad that there was not a physical exam.

Was I the only one that had a two week exam? My next exam will be a 6 week exam, and I am sure that I will be checked again!! Has anyone else had a 2 week exam?!?!

Susan C - you are not alone! I had a pelvic and use of a speculum at my 2 week - no pain at all - in fact, I was surprised I had any feeling, but I did and it was not painful at all.
