I am 26 years old. I have always wanted to get this surgery done. I've talked myself out of it numerous of times. I finally got it done April 4, 2013 in Evansville Indiana by Dr. Sandefur. He is at the Women's Hospital. I read a lot about this surgery and the good and bad stories. I went into surgery at 8am. I was out of the door heading home by 1030am. I went under general anesthesia. I did not feel pain at all my first day. I basically slept the whole day I got back from surgery. I iced the area constantly that day. I read a lot of women having problems urinating. I have not had a problem. Everytime I urinate I use a spray bottle to spray water to rinse off the urine and use a towel to tap it dry. I also started taking arnica Montana a couple days before my surgery and I continue to take it now. I don't know if its really helped or not? I am bruised and a little swollen but I don't think it's that bad. 2 weeks before my surgery I started taking vitamin c and b complex. I'm still taking those afterwards as well. My doctor told me not to take baths. I read some stories where the women take sitz baths but I'm going to go ahead and listen to doctor about this. I took a shower the following morning of surgery. Doctor told me just to let the water run down and not to use soap on that area. Had no problem with that either. Today is my 3rd day and I have just took a loratab in morning and before bed. My pain is not bad at all. Oh also I forgot my doc gave me some cream to put on myself 3 times a day. It is anecream:topical anesthetic cream. Day 2 I started using Tucks pads. They help out a lot! I have used for some bruising around my outer lips arnica cream. It has helped a little bit as well. Only thing that really bothers me is that sometimes my regular pads stick to my stitches or sometimes sticks to the dry blood and its not pleasant. Even though its not pretty right now I can already tell a huge difference! I can't wait to see the final results! I've been taking daily pics of the progress. My doc told me not to look at all but can't help it.
It's been a week now since my surgery. Healing is...
