Lower Abdominal Pain After Cervical Polyp Surgery?
I want to ask if after surgery for cervical polyps I can’t sit for a long time because it causes lower abdominal pain to go through the back …? Still the answer …
Cervical polyps are lumps on the cervix that are benign in nature. Initially cervical polyps are usually asymptomatic. However, sometimes cervical polyps can cause complaints in the form of bleeding outside the menstrual cycle, bleeding after intercourse, more menstruation, if there is an infection, abnormal vaginal discharge can occur.
Treatment of cervical polyps is by surgery. After cervical polyp surgery, several complaints can arise, such as:
Pain in the vagina
Cramps in the lower abdomen or vagina
Generally these complaints will improve after a few days. However, lower abdominal pain also may not be related to polyp surgery. Apart from polyp surgery, lower abdominal pain can also be caused by urinary tract infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, vaginal inflammation / vaginitis, and cervical inflammation / cervicitis.
To reduce post surgery complaints for polyps, you can do the following tips:
Keep your vagina clean
Postpone intercourse until your doctor allows it
Warm compress on the lower abdomen
Consumption of medicine from a doctor, usually the doctor has given painkillers for several days after surgery
Avoid excess activity
If sitting is uncomfortable, you can sit on a pillow to make it more soft
After polyp surgery, you should check with the obstetrician who treats you so that you can re-evaluate your condition. You can go to the doctor 3-4 days after surgery or according to the doctor who treats you. You can convey if there are still complaints of postoperative lower abdominal pain so that further treatment can be given.
