PS said no big deal. She's protecting herself as all I could do was ask her why she cut so far down in area asked her specifically not to. Yeast infection also.
GYN says anatomically things are healed and look ok. He sees scar marks from this wound opening. Suggests massage to prevent tightening. Not much he can say about when pain will go away, but hopes I will feel better in few weeks.
Problem is everyone who posts complications and updates are no better off, or slightly better a year later. I have seen none with similar stories and later reporting success a few months down the road.
Common thread on these is typically split stitches/wound opening. Why do doctors not prepare for this??? I saw one site only that lays out everything. My dr just said "don't do too much". Never once said be careful about even slightly straining. As a matter of fact, when this happened, I asked if should hold pernieum in place when having bm. She said "no need". Guess you can gather I ignored her and did thank gosh.
Posting mainly to find out if anyone experienced numbness and pain almost 6 weeks out. And what their prognosis was another 2-3 months later. This constant pain and discomfort was ok the first few weeks. It's now unbearable. Reminder everyday of the mistake I made going to this woman.
Mercy & hope to you,upstate, Imo, i think you may have infection. When exactly last time perineum seen by a dr? Hot to touch, redness, swollen? I know you have pain. Truly, the body a remarkable thing. It heals. I have chronic pain in back caused 100% by medical actions. Mri showed it in 1988. Finally told 2012!! This is how much they will protect self &their kind. I dont want to be nosy or unkind, first, are you disfigured even if swelling goes down? Second, let me investigate if a test, like a nerve conduction study can be performed for that area. Is it nerve pain? Electric like ,shooting pain. Or giant ache, burning, pressure, throbbing,itching,you said numbness right? This is personal so check
yourself & (lets not put on board ok) in very important areas for numbness( button &entrance) & just say yes if present.ok? Waiting for you next post.
Ps sometimes only the bad posted. There could be great results but no one posts the good. Why would they take the time? Remember that when browsing. Let me hear, please
