After a portion of the cervix is removed how long does it take to heal ?
At just before cancer stages a lesion was seem during a pap. A portion of the cervix has now been removed and its been a week with horrible pain to my left hand side. I dont want to take the pain meds but how long is this feeling going to continue ?!! When will i feel normal again ?? :(
It takes 4 to 6 weeks for the cervix to heal after surgery. During this time you can have a lot of vaginal discharge. However severe pain is not a feature. Hence for the pain you should consult your Doctor.
