Still freaking leaking!!

    Over 8 weeks post-op and no sex in sight. I went back to the doctor yesterday because I still have a very light discharge which is actually abdominal fluid leaking through a tiny opening (like a little tunnel) in the vaginal cuff. He swears he has never seen a tunnel become permanent and says sometimes the abdomen just produces extra fluid that doesn’t get reabsorbed and if there is an opening (tunnel), it just…leaks. Everything looks good, it will just take a little more time.

    Once it finally stops leaking, I have to wait two more weeks after that and then we can finally have PIV. It is already too late for us to have sex on our anniversary–something we have never failed to do.

    I think. I’m going. To die.

    Please pray that my leak closes, and that I don’t go bat crap crazy waiting for it to happen! Thanks!

    You might have a fistula….. be careful as they can either heal up or be long term issue.  We suggest you get a 2nd opinion from a gym-onc MD from a different facility just to make sure.  Typically the vaginal cuff should seal within a few days, unless the surgeon’s sutures were placed too far apart: with resultant no sealing and hence your leaking of abdominal fluid.   This can become a big issue and really does warrant an expert second opinion (from some one not affiliated with initial institution – and yes we know where) Can we suggest either going north to GWU,  or better UNC, or best Duke.  In our prayers

    Wow, that is scary. Thank you for mentioning that, I will definitely check into it. Thank you for the prayers!

    Agreed, get that looked at by someone else. Not normal.

    After Wife’s hysterectomy, there was no sexual stimulation allowed for two weeks including snuggling. She was in too much pain anyway. No orgasms or PIV for 10 weeks.

    I second this. It might correct itself, as your doc said, or it might require surgery. Certainly, if your doc has never seen one like yours that didn’t heal itself, you want to go to someone who has.

      Sorry to hear of this disappointing news. How frustrating it must be! That’s incredibly long to be without sex. Can’t imagine how hungry you must be for it! Yes, I’ll pray that your healing comes fast and thoroughly!

        We know of a lady who bled for 12 years, can you imagine! And she went to Jesus, and in faith, touched His garment. We know the Healer! Praying for you!

        I have given that lady a LOT of thought since the beginning of this year! 🙂

            Prayed, and will try to remember to do so. It’s maybe time to make a list of several here with different needs.

              How frustrating, Sis!

              Is masturbation and AS off the table too?

              If so, how about cuddling?

              AS is a no. M was given a reluctant ok at the first follow-up, but I have also been warned that the muscular contractions of an O can mess things up, and I don’t want to take chances.

              Cuddling is definitely on the menu and we have agreed to make it a priority in the coming weeks. 🙂
