I've been a member for several years and my labia has always been something that caused me physical pain. It hurt all the time,and only got worse over time. It wasn't so much the look, it was the pain I was in.
5 days ago I made the big decision to finally go through with it. After saving up several thousand dollars I tossed the idea back and forth for many years, and even backed out a few times. It is healing well, Was very painful on the first day,but currently in less pain than the day before surgery [Smile]

I have stitches that I'm not supposed to get wet. Is there anything you recommend covering them with so I can shower and keep the area dry? Anything to speed healing even more? Thanks so much for your help

Hi Destiny'schild,

This is a question best posed to the surgeon who did the procedure. How about calling their office and asking how to keep the stitches dry while you bathe?
