I went for my 3 month post op (radical abdominal hystercetomy) check up this morning. The consultant said I had some granulation and then treated it with silver nitrate.
He said it forms on the scar tissue and the silver nitrate takes it away so new skin can form. It didn't hurt at the time though I was a bit sore afterwards for a while. He said I would probably have some discharge although I haven't as yet. My next appointment is on 4th April when I will have a smear.
The problem is I've been looking up granulation and silver nitrate treatment on this and Hyster Sisters sites and some ladies have had it done a few times and in some cases eventually had to have it removed under general anaesthetic.
This has got me a bit screwed up now and I was just wondering what others have experienced.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
