9 mos Post- LAVH . PRESSURE/burning sensation inside vagina

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi, everyone! I'm 9 mos Post LAVH. The first 4 mos were very uncomfortable. Felt like something poking me or about to fall out. I had several f/u appts, with good report. The past 2 wks or so I have began to experience alot of pressure in the vagina and feel as if something is going to fall out. It is also painful. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms 9 mos Post op?

    It sounds strange to me. I would have it checked out though I know that is also scary.

      Yes, it is scary! I feel as if I'm aching constantly. I have also noticed an increase in discharge and pain while standing for even short periods of time. No bleeding. I did schedule an appt for check up. Just want to make sure it's not granulation or possible prolapse! Thanks for the feedback, good luck to all with recovery. ?

    Hi, i want you to know i understand what you are going through. I had my vaginal hysterectomy 9 months ago and i haven't been well yet. Ive been to seveal Doctor's appointment complaining about this pain in my lower stomach. My doctor checked my Ovaries and Kidneys and they are okay. He did a urine specimen and found blood in the urine. I have been on antibiotics for 3 months and the blood is still there. My sex life is very painful and im constantly holding my stomach if i cough or have to urinate. I don't know if my bladder has dropped. I know in tired of the pain. A procedure that i thought would make my life better has been a nightmare for 9 months. My doctor referred me out to a Urologist to see if they can help me. The appointment is a month out!! I continue to Pray and ask God to help me get thru this pain. I hope you will find answers too...

      Hi misha,

      I'm not sure if this message will be of any use to you because it's been a minute since you posted. Did you ever have problems with your bladder pre surgery? When you do get to see the referral doctor, see if having a scope is an option. It is not the most graceful method, but very helpful in narrowing down the culprit field.

    I'm sorry you ladies are suffering! Bladder, bowel and vaginal problems including prolapse seem fairly common after hysterectomy. Various infections including UTI's are also common. And it's difficult to get help...proper diagnosis and treatment. We end up trading one set of problems for a whole new set. sad

    Best of luck getting answers and treatment.
