I am very worried about something.
I will soon have surgery to remove my endometriosis (laparoscopy).
They're going to remove my ovarian endometriomas, adhesions and remove an endometrioc nodule that is behind my uterus (torus uterinus). I probably other things.
This nodule is located in the base (behind the uterus), in the top of the vaginal canal.
They said that most likely they will have to open my vagina (the mucosa) to remove the nodule.
I'm very concerned about the removal of this nodule, because in my daily basis I do not have pain in my vagina (I have in my belly, intestines, etc) - I don't know if the nodule causes me pain during intercourse, because I do not have it for long time - and I think that making a cut, and stitches, in such sensitive area I can have pain forever in pain my vagina (due to cutting and sewing). Open the vaginal canal is very scary.
Has anyone had to open the vagina to remove nodules or other lesions?
I know that in hysterectomy the vaginal canal is opened then stitched, but I do not know if women are in pain because of the scar in that area or if they feel the scar inside.
I'm wondering the cut and scar tissue will left me with permanent pain in the vagina...
