Can anyone who has had their entire gland removed tell me if this is normal? I expected some bruising, bleeding, swelling but not numbness. It is 24 hours later and it feels like my vagina had a stroke and is numb in the area the cyst was and all around it. I really hope the feeling comes back with time, because I can't imagine trading my gland for nerve damage. I didn't even really want my gland to be taken, I just wanted the cyst gone but it is what my doctor wanted to do, because I have had it so long, it has disrupted my life and he didn't want to chance it coming back. I was kind of taken aback because I am only 24 and the only other methods that were tried was an office based failed needling and squeezing attempt, and basic home care like sitz baths. Never had marsupialization or word catheter, just skipped straight to gland removal. I am glad that I don't have to go through with a surgery only to fear for the rest of my life of it coming back anyway but I am scared of the possibility of nerve damage 😦 When does the feeling come back?
