I had my gland removal surgery 6 weeks ago and my obgyn says it's healing fine and bruising and swelling went away and it's still tender but I've noticed that every now and then in the last 2 weeks I'll get this burning sensation where it was removed. She gave me lidocaine to numb the area when that happens, and estrogen cream to appy every other night for the next 30 days saying that will speed up healing. I told her I don't want to continue with the Vicodins. She gave me Aleve 550mg instead. Which I notice when I pee it burns after I take them. Has anyone had that burning sensation from either the area it was removed or from Aleve. I've switched to otc Tylenol now. She also said at 2 weeks things will calm down which they have but didn't tell me that sometimes it's not unusual to have pain in that area for quite some time. She had to take some stiches out 2 weeks ago that were deep that didn't dissolve and were making me uncomfortable and said that removing would help I don't know if that is causing the burning sensation and it's only on the outside not inside. My period is due in 6 days and don't know if that is making everything worse or if it's just part of the whole healing process. Help
