Post recovery following Vaginoplasty for GRS surgery?

Your new vagina will need special care and attention to ensure proper healing and functioning for the long term so you will have to do your part to engage in this process.

After a vaginoplasty, a prosthesis similar in shape to a penis will be placed in your vagina for about five days to allow the skin of your new vagina to adhere to the vaginal wall. In order to help you urinate while you are healing, a catheter will be used to drain your bladder, allowing your shortened and reposition urethra to mend. Your surgeon will monitor your progress while in hospital and will make a clinical decision as to when the prosthesis and catheter can be removed – generally five to seven days after surgery. Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions for your continuing recovery. It is extremely important to follow these carefully and completely.
