Vaginal cuff repair

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, am 16 days post OP from a laproscopic hysterectomy. on day 13 some stitches in my vaginal cuff came apart near a blood vessel and I started to bleed out. I was luckily very close to the hospital otherwise I may have lost my life. I had to have a blood transfusion and surgery to repair the cuff. has anyone else had their cuff tear or open? if so what helped or is helping with getting past the fear of it happening again? I'm afraid everytime I get up to pee or if I sneeze or cough it's going to reopen.

    Intense, deep seeded fears develop after traumatic events in which you fear for your life. Think PTSD. It can be difficult to get by using "willpower" or "common sense". In my case (a health related ER visit left me traumatized) I rbegan counseling and eventually started taking an antidepressant. My advice is to seek professional help.
