    Hi, I also had this done 6 weeks ago and still have sore area also, I went to doctors to get checked and had infection so given antibiotics so feel little better now, still hurts to sit for long time, when do.you have your next check.up due,? I use an.ice pack for short periods of time and these has eased pain, hope you feeling better soon. It can take a while to feel right again, give yourself time and plenty of rest.

      Hi, my next appointment with consultant is in February. The doctor took a swab last week and it came back clear, he thought it was mild thrush as there was a bit of white there. Now its sore the other side. I didn't have alot of discomfort after operation, the surgeon she done it very neatly. I still haven't worn any knickers, and been wearing palanza trousers, but its getting colder now and aren't very warm. Hope you're feeling better soon 😊 x

      Hi, that seems a long time until follow up, mine is in November, so only 3 months after the surgery, I would contact doctor or consultant again and explain your concerns, this is so annoying isn't it, yes know what you mean about finding clothes to be comfortable in, take care and hope you feeling better soon.

      I wonder if the irritation down there could be down to nerve endings, the consultant told me on the 10th August that it would be healed by 3weeks, which the scars have healed, I thought everything then would be back to normal , I wonder how long it will it take, sorry for keep textin you. Take care 😊 x

      Hi no problem in keep messaging, happy to help where I can, I think everyone heals differently and for me it has been a good 7 weeks and just started to feel bit normal, although still not brave enough to make love with my husband, sorry maybe TMI, lol.  I am so lucky he is very patient and kind, 

      make sure you are not using any kind of perfume soap, I just bath in salt water and have showers. Take care and hope you feel better soon.

      Hi Nicola, my consultant told me after the operation, to get the shower head, and and move it up and down movement  down below for 10 seconds  3 times a day, as he said it would remove any debris and stop an infection setting in after the operation, also he said to make sure to put shower head to the backside area too., he told me not to sit in the bath no more than 5 mins. Was your operation to remove vin ? .Take care x
