bartholins glad removed, still in pain

User Profile
Hello everyone,

I've had my right bartholins glad removed on 9/7/15 and still in lots of pain, I've also fell a hard tissue where the glad was ( more like a lamp) and every time I have intercorse it seems to grow bigger. I was wondering if this is normal and if anybody had the same somptoms after the surgey?

Thank you for your help

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Painful coitus after bartholin gland removal is normal. Its due to reduced lubrication. Use of lubricants and having some pain relief will help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
