Re: Damage To Vaginal Tissue Due HPV Treament

If you aren't feeling like your body is reacting the right way after the freezing of the tissue, then call and/or go back to the doctor's office.

You need to remember that the liquid nitrogen freezes the tissue, as in a freeze-type-burn. So it kills the cells that are in contact with the liquid nitrogen. It makes sense to me that the treatment might be deep enough to cause some bleeding, though not a lot.

I doubt the damage would be to the extent that reconstructive surgery would be needed. I suspect the bleeding will lighten up after a day or so (when it scabs over), then later if/when the scab comes off there might be a little bit of bleeding. The area should heal and there should be minimal or no trace that the freezing ever occured.
