Blood blisters after surgery?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I think I have a blood blister in my vaginal lips? Have only noticed this after surgery, I'm 6 weeks post op and it's still there, very small blackish bump, shines. Could it perhaps been caused by an instrument sitting surgery? Anyone else had this

    Hi Kelly,

    I don't have a blood blister but think you may be correct that what you have could be from an instrument used during surgery. After my prolapse repair, I had two round wounds that scabbed while I was in hospital. They were round and straight across from each other, located on my pubic bone, well above my vagina. Since my surgery was done vaginally, I was surprised to see them. The scabs remained there for 6 full weeks. Now healed, you cannot see them since that area has hair, but there are still two bumps. At my 3 week post op visit, the nurse told me it was glue from an instrument used to for bladder sling. Who knows? I'm not sure how glue caused that but given all my other concerns, i let it go. When you are seen next, ask. You may have been nicked or something with a surgical instrument.

    If you developed blood blisters because of something that happened in the operating theatre then I would be extremely surprised. No surgical instruments should or would cause them.

    Sorry kelly I pressed the reply button by mistake. The blisters are probably due to a viral infection.
