I am a 42 year old who had a hysterectomy May 7 of this year (everything removed -- uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix -- except ovaries). I have had nausea and pain since the hysterectomy and this weekend I began to bleed. Today I saw a NP at my OBGYN office and she found 3 very large polyps near the site where they stitched up my vagina (where the cervix was). She said they had a large blood supply and they are removing them next week at an outpatient surgery center. She said they looked very inflamed. I am also having a vaginal discharge with them (greenish yellow, no odor). I am in significant pain from them. I have been bleeding more since the examination and I would like to know what causes these types of polyps and what the prognosis is...can they return? Are they normally benign? Are there underlying medical causes? I have also been diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder this past year and have a lot of inflammation in my body...could there be a connection here? Thank you for your time.
