5 weeks post A&P surgery and I have a burning feeling all the time, not when just passing water. Has anyone else experienced this or could it be an infection?

      Hi Joan I've just ordered some coconut oil as read on one of the post that it can help with dry areas and thought that might be a bit of the problem, I also looked up the uses and it says quite safe to use down there, so thought I'd give it a go. 

      Hope all goes well for you on wed morning my appointment should have been on the 28th but had letter to say postponed until 23rd.

      i agree with you it would have been nice if we had been told more as these things do upset and worry you don't they.

    If you're feeling burning even when not passing urine there's a strong possibility it's a urine infection. Speak to your doctor because your are still recovering from surgery and you don't want anything to impede on your recovery.
