30+ Year Old, 2 Kids, Vagino and Labiaplasty - NY

I had both vagino and labiaplasty almost 2 months...

I had both vagino and labiaplasty almost 2 months ago under general anesthesia. The only care was to keep the area clean, apply bacitracin and at 1 week, I began sitz baths to help dissolve stiches and clean the area. I also began taking vitamin c and stool softener 1 week prior to surgery to help with recovery. I did not have to take the prescribed pain killer or muscle relaxer at any time during recovery because I had tolerable discomfort - not pain. I was back at work in 4 days and I was able to walk normal within 1 week, but I could not sit down comfortably until 2 weeks. I also stopped bleeding in 2 weeks. The 3rd week was SO itchy! I developed an allergy to the bacitracin from prolonged use. And the fourth week I was cleared to resume normal activity and exercise. At 6 weeks, I can only fit 1 finger, so I have ordered a vaginal dilator set to help with that a bit so my first sexual experience following the surgery will not be too awkward. The labia looks so much neater and feels better during exercise. I do not "leak" any more during exercise or when sneezing, as happens after childbirth. I will keep updating how the dilators are working once I start them. Any and all questions are welcome.

2 months post op

I am almost 2 months post op. I have been using the 3rd size dilator which is 32mm x 140mm. I have to saturate it in lubricant to get it in and once in, it hurts! I leave it for a few minutes and then gradually move it around. Within a few minutes, it feels great! I have been doing this for a little over a week and it is still impossible to get it in without lots of lubricant.
Other than just trying to stretch out a little, everything is back to normal. The excessive discharge has finally stopped and inside and out, it's as though I had nothing done - no discomfort at all!
