my doctor preformed a sonohystergram today, I was having heavy

This answer was rated:

my doctor preformed a sonohystergram today, I was having heavy bleeding and large clotting for months with spotting inbetween. She found a very large polyp in the uterus and one small one in the vagina. She has scheduled me for surgery to have a hysterocope, polyp removal via Myosure, and a d&c. I am 44 years old. Is it unusual to preform all these procedures at once? and I cannot find any info on polyps in the vagina. what should I expect after all these procedures in one day and what is the recovery like?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

hello

Dr. Pfeiffer :

yes, this is very common to do all these procedures at once...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

and, while it sounds like a lot of work, really, you're looking at approximately 15 minutes for everything.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

upon awakening you might have some mild cramping, but typically this is tolerated very well.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

there may be some mild spotting for a few days afterwords, but nothing real heavy.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

the polyp in the vagina is most likely coming from the cervix and protruding into the vagina.
