I have been progressing ok apart from extreme diarrhoea (please exuse spelling) on day 5 leading to soreness on outside of vulva.Its like i have a split in skin it is very sore when urinating. Does anyone have any ideas as to which cointment  is best for this type of sore. I am 50 and perimenopause. This is an amazing forum to which I am very grateful gave me lots of good information before I went for surgery . Any ideas on cremes will be much appreciated .

    Hello pam. You need something that will prevent any urine making it even worse so an ointment rather than a cream. If you have any Vaseline that would help and it does  have healing properties as well. Sudocreme is also good.

    Thanks Matron I did think sudocreme was going to be ok.Not sure what its is as its not really near stitches etc. i thought it maybe where they had had clamps or something.

      It could be pam and there's always a lot of stretching going on during the surgery as well.

    Thanks Debra I did take something, I phoned the ward and they told me Diacalm which I had in. I also stuffed 3 bananas down in record time which calmed it.The problem was the next 2 days which were agony I convinced myself I had ripped something in my bowel. I could only lay flat and not sit at all very painful on the inside of bottom. Luckily it only lasted 2 days. and now I feel ok.It all feels very swollen still and heavy a bit like the prolapse itself !!.
