Hello everyone - I am 4 months post op & have a questions regarding granulation. I spoke to my Dr today because I had very light discharge (pink & brown). He mentioned it may be granulation. I made an appointment with him tomorrow for a check-up. Anyone out there with this problem? What exactly is it? The Dr. mentioned "freezing" the area? Is it painful? Just when you think it's over!!!!!

bmjs, don't worry about it! Granulation tissue is usually very easily treated in the doctors office and the proceedure itself isn't painful. Most use silver nitrate to, in effect, cauterize it. It sloughs off, the area heals, and you're done. Sometimes it can take more treatments, depending on how stubborn yours is. Be prepared that you may feel crampy for a couple of days after the treatment and you'll be advised to have no sex for at least a few days--my doctor said one week. I had some blackish/brownish spotting for a few days, too, which is normal. Let us know how your appointment goes.

I had the silver nitrate procedure also - It wasn't painful in the least...took about a minute and I was good to go.

My didn't give me any follow-up insructions - Just told me to feel free to toss the pantyliners!

I also had big deal. The doc treated it with silver nitrate in his office and it was fine. I told my boyfriend that I had a "shiny vaginy" and he said I must have been confused and visited the dentist instead of the gyn!!!

I came to the boards looking for the exact same symptoms. I also am 4 months post & having discharge. I spoke with my doc & they said if it's not gone by monday to go in so they can touch it us with some silver nitrate due to granulation. I had that done before when I was a couple of weeks post op & they did the silver nitrate treatment. They just swab it with some swabs to touch it up. Doesn't hurt a bit. You may be a little crampy a couple days after but that is all.

Thank you everyone for responding. I went to the Dr. on Friday. He said that it was not granulation. He said that it was mini-period! He said that it may happen from time to time (I had a SAH on 11/18/02). I always knew there was a chance this may happen, but it was very scary to see! The bleeding was very light (did not require a pad). When I discovered that I was bleeding, it brought back soooo many bad memories. But now I know what it is I know I'm going to be ok! I feel 120% better since my surgery! Thank you everyone!!!
