I have my first 3 month check next week after my trach which was done via an abdominal incision. This is the first check up I have had since the surgery (I know other people have had one 6 weeks later) etc. I only went back in to hospital after to get my catheter removed.
Anyway I am not sure what to expect? I dunno if I am meant to go back to the day clinic where I had the colposcopy or the gynae ward where I had my cone, trach and catheter removal? Obviously I will call and ask them. The reason for the question is if I am going to the day clinic I hope that still means I get a chance to talk to the consultant who did my op as he is very good.
The more intimate details… Will I be given a colposcopy/smear type investigation down below? I guess it is a yes but I also hope that there is time to ask a few things as I have a few questions.
I still have numbness from the top of my pubic bone area to my belly button, not totally numb but definitely less sensation and still sensitive to pressure and tight clothing etc. I am also concerned about intimacy as things have been quite uncomfortable/sore since the op. Any advice would be great! x
