Granulation and Silver Nitrate, those are two words that I never want to hear again…At my 6 weeks post OB check up, the nurse practitioner noticed that I had some granulation tissue built up…that made sense for how much I was still really really sore. I just thought that the stitches had not healed correctly or I was sitting too much for work, but it was painful all the time not just sitting or standing. She told me it was pretty much just scar tissue that had not healed and that she would need to cauterize/burn it off. It was actually quite painful, she put silver nitrate on it to get all the granulation tissue off, the silver nitrate cauterizes the unwanted tissue so new cells could grow and hopefully heal right. I had to schedule an appointment for the following week to do the treatment again and they said that I would just have to keep coming back until it was gone. I went in the following week to my actually doctor and he said that the tissue was still quite large and would take many silver nitrate applications to remove and if I wanted to do that I could keep coming back but he gave me another option. If I wanted he could simply just cut it off and then cauterize it and it would hurt for a week or so but it would then heal faster and I would not have to keep coming back each week till it was gone. I went with the cutting it off and ouch, he applied local/topical numbing stuff but it was very painful...overall I am glad that I took that option. It took a week to heal and I have only had a few times where it has been really painful. Things seem to be getting better and like I said at the beginning Granulation and Silver Nitrate are two words that I never want to hear again, but I would go through it all again to have my little man and any future little lads or ladies that await.
