Have you been back to the doctor for follow up
please type a response
Yes 6 weeks after my op he said everything looked ok I thought it would settle but it hasnt
But that has been two years
Why have you not been back?
I thought the feeling would eventually come back and I thought the dryness was due to my gland being removed.
There can be nerve damage.
That should get better within a year if it is going to.
But, there can also be pelvic syndromes that compress nerves, and physical therapy might help.
I would go back to the doctor...ask for an exam.
Hormonal problems can also perpetuate dryness.
That would need to be tested.
Yes but the dryness only came after my op.
There is more than one gland. Damage would have to be extensive. You need a sex hormone panel, thyroid blood test, and am cortisol to get a complete picture
My doctor is very good at brushing things under the carpet, it was actually a nurse doing my smear that got my cyst looked at.
Did you understand my comments about hormones?
Low estrogen or thyroid imblance can contribute to dryness.
These are easily tested with blood tests.
If your doctor is not going to be attentive, ask for a referral; endocrinology or internal medicine.
No bother thanx so do u think this is coincidence or to do with my op
I think it can have to do with your operation and or reflect hormonal problems and pelvic problems,as above
No bother thanx
