Re: Cyst Removal near Clitoris Safe?
I went back and forth as well, deciding if it was the right thing to do. If it's bothering you and you want it gone, then I would say do it, for a few reasons: 1) it will be gone and they can test it to be absolutely sure it's nothing serious, 2) it would put your mind at ease regarding the aesthetic aspects, 3) if you let it go, there is always the possibility it could get larger and cause other problems later.. and like you said, you may not have insurance coverage..
Mine was quite deep the doc said. She told me at my post-op visit that she had to put in 4-5 layers of internal sutures and then the dermabond stuff on the surface (think superglue!), she used the dermabond to minimize scarring. Be prepared to be sore for a week or two.. I didn't totally feel 100% "me" again for about 3 - 3 & 1/2 weeks.. also, initially, because of all the swelling, I thought the scar was going to be horrific!! It definitely isn't. It's a very sensitive area, very vascular and it swelled a LOT, it seemed way worse the first week or so. Now, I can barely tell where the incision was and it's receded towards the interior of the labia. The pain was manageable with the pain medicine she gave me. Just be mindful of getting up and sitting down.. you don't realize just how much you use those muscles to do those things!!
Good luck making your decision and whatever you choose, I hope you're feeling better soon.
