I would please like to know if anyone else has had any problems with their vaginal cuff healing after their radical hysterectomy. I am having a rough time of my body healing.
I had a radical hysterectomy on March 22 and was given the ok to have sex 6 weeks later. I waited 8 weeks and it has turned into a nightmare. During intercourse, I had no pain but immediately afterwards...I started cramping really really bad and bleeding. I went to the ER and ended up in emergency surgery for a vaginal cuff repair,
Well, 12 weeks after that repair (and having NO sex) I started cramping again and bleeding out of nowhere. I went to the ER and ended up in emergency surgery AGAIN. My vaginal cuff which was supposibly healed up was once again open and my bowels were pushing out. So they cut out more of my vagina and sewed it back up again with longer lasting sutures.
That was 2 weeks ago. I had my 1st post-op appt today and all is well so far. I am still closed up with sutures. But I am on strict restrictions. No lifting, pushing, pulling, bending, running, jumping or exercise and I am suppose to lay down as often as I can to prevent my bowels from pushing against the sutures and causing it to re-open. I cannot have sex for 6 months now. And if I dont heal this time, they are going to put permanent sutures inside me and I will never be able to have sex again.
Is there anyone else out there that has had anything similar happen to them and is there hope that maybe I will heal this time?!
