Just to update on last couple of week's concerns. I am now 25 weeks post-op for A&P repair of pelvic floor.
I was concerned about nippy/jagged feeling at front left just inside vag... passage; was worried of possibility of a stitch still being there. Also felt really irritated and had slight discharge pinky/grey and yellow.
You mentioned of possible but unlikely that may still be inbeded stitch causing infection and most likely just overdone things.
Anyway saw my GP today, could not find any sign of lingering stitch, she said that I do have some scar tissue at that side and agrees that I have probably overdone things and stretched the scar tissue. As I am already using tablet form of vagifem she has changed if too the cream form and advised to target that area.
I know that that particular week around a fortnight ago was particularly busy: school shopping, returned to gym after a few weeks off, shifts at work were heavier than usual, had lifted heavy pasta pot (too impatient to ask for help) and because I had been particularly feeling just about fully back to normal had been busier in the house too.
But I suppose you can't become to complacent after pelvic flood surgery and even after 6 months still have to be careful not to overdo things and to stay within limits of what you know you can cope with.
So unexpected as even in early weeks post surgery I never had any suggestion of discomfort at the front end it was always the posterior end that was a bit nippy, thought that would never end yet that is all healed now
Anyway hope the cream works, been resting and it's not been so bad, but is definitely a thin bit of tight tissue to the left side at front end just about a centimeter in (feels similar to the thin skin at bottom of thumb where joins next finger except very tight). May have overstretched it when doing low impact indoor walking/exercise.
Anyway will be more careful as it takes so long to recover. Desperate too get back on my bike before winter starts, but definitely will have to wait a little while yet.
Hope everyone else is doing well and continuing to be careful.
Always grateful for your advice matron, Hope you are enjoying your new home and settling into your new community!
