I am currently 6 weeks post op. My doctor drained the cyst 2 times in a year and then decided to remove it. It was about the size of a ping pong ball. The surgery was quick and the pain was pretty extreme. I did have some bruising but it went away within a week. After about a week I stopped taking the pain meds because the pain was tolerable. I waited two weeks to drive and by three weeks I could easily sit normally again. Stitches finally fell out around 4 weeks. I believe they caused irritaion in the outer labia. I still have swelling in the lower right labia and sex is slightly painful. I am wondering if anyone out there can help me with a timeline for pain. I am so tired of the hurting when trying to be intimate with my soon to be husband. Its a sharp pain and there is a ball of hard tissue. The whole area becomes large and hard when I become arroused. My doctor told me to extect pain for about 3 months. I am hoping that it will completely heal before then. Also, I am wondering about scar tissue and if there is any way to help that process along. Thank you for listening (reading).
