Thanks! I find myself really wanting to avoid doctors just because I had that period of time where it seemed like I was always visiting one or another, but I guess I will have to suck it up and go if it doesn't get better.

Sounds like it could be scar tissue, which would break down over time, hence the original advice to wait.

Having said that, it's worth getting a second opinion from a doctor who has actually examined you, not least because there may be treatments that could help it break down more quickly.

Has this persisted, Duchess?
What you described reminded me of what my provider called “skid marks” after I delivered a baby. Abrasions that were sensitive for a time afterward.

It has improved. It is not 100% gone, but much better. Thanks for asking. :)

Duchess, I’m an OR nurse ( I was an ER nurse for most of 20 yrs of nursing, but switched a couple years ago), often with vaginal hysterectomies the surgeon use a weighted speculum so I think you are right that the cause has something to do with stretching or it could be pressure on a nerve during the surgery that takes time to resolve. I’m glad to hear that you’re better!
