Ah,: Ah, why don't women know about the benefits of a vinegar and water douche? If you can change the ph of the vagina, the flora will change back to normal. One hot water bottle, one quart of warm water, a tablespoon of white vinegar, and miraculously that nasty odor is gone. Repeat this treatment every few days or whenever you notice an abnormal vaginal odor.
Use of a probiotic (any lactobaccillis containing yogurt by mouth or in vagina) will help to restore the bacteria that belong there. The pain of intercourse probably has little to do with the vaginosis. If ovaries were removed at the time of hysterectomy, you probably also have atrophic changes of the vaginal tissues. Your doctor can prescribe an estrogen vaginal cream that will help to toughen up the tissues and restore normal lubrication. You are not doomed. ...Read more

The size and ultrasound appearance of the cyst as well as the results of the blood tests may raise or lower the suspicion of cancer. It might be best to ask your doctor what they are thinking because they have those details. ...Read more

Breathing tube: Most likely during the surgery you had a breathing tube placed while you were asleep. This tube comes in a few forms and could cause some irritation of the throat. Usually this is short lived and some over the counter remedies that you have no described can help. This can predispose you for infection, if it is not getting better I would consider getting an exam or antibiotics to be safe. ...Read more

Hysterectomy 24 yrs ago. Uterus & cervix removed. Vaginal bleeding. Family Dr. Says it's a polyp. Have a referral to see Gyn. What happens now? I'm 66

Polyp: If there is a polyp there, it is likely that the doctor will remove or at least biopsy it. After a hysterectomy or menopause the most common reason for bleeding is the thinning of the vaginal tissue due to low estrogen levels. This is called atrophic vaginitis. Occasionally, after a hysterectomy there will be granulation tissue or "proud flesh" at the cuff which can resemble a polyp and bleed. ...Read more
