Vaginal vault polyps/granulation tissue

Options
Good Morning Everyone!
  I attended my 6 mos post op/follow up visit with my surgeon yesterday. I will also mention that chemo finished on Aug 13th. During the appt an internal was performed and vaginal vault polyps/granulation tissue was found. Although I was assured that it may be scar tissue from surgery and that is occurs, a biopsy was taken to be assessed. A CT scan has also been ordered to determine outcomes as well.  
I am curious if anyone else has gone through this or has any information on it. From what I can find in articles, they are older information and nothing relevant within the past year or two.  
Any insight from my fellow sisters would be appreciated. 
Take care
Tammy

    Good Day!
      I am writing to follow up from this post.  I did not hear from anyone and will assume that no one else has experienced this. 
      I have not had my follow up appt with the surgeon but have been able to view my biopsy and it is non cancerous.  The granulation tissue is a type of scar tissue that can build in the body especially in more moisture laden areas from what I have read.  I thought it would be best to give an update in case anyone else does go through this.  If there is anything more to add after speaking with the surgeon, I will definitely post it as well.
      Hope all are doing as well as can be. 
    Take care

    Thanks for sharing your story and update with the group..and for offering further updates if there are any.  There could be others in the community who have experienced a similar situation but just not active on the platform right now. It would be nice to add to this discussion thread as a reference for future.  But great you've started it.

    Cheers and wishing you heath and joy this holiday season,
