There could be a few things going on...firstly, if you've had a hysterectomy for uterine cancer, I presume your ovaries were removed too. This loss of hormones can cause changes to the vagina - the tissues can become thinner, lose their elasticity, and become so fragile and friable that they tear easily, in which case urination would hurt.

Another possibility is that you have a yeast infection. the hallmark of a yeast infection is itching and cottage cheese discharge, but sometimes the irritation can be very painful too.

All that being said, the "pus pockets" concern me. I really think you should let a gynecologist or family doc do an exam to make sure all is well done there. In the meantime, I recommend avoiding any vaginal washes or creams (like Vagisil) because they contain alcohol and can worsen your irritation. Applying coconut oil might make it feel better. A Sitz bath (where you soak in a tub filled with a few inches of water) can also help cause relief.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
