Vaginal Bleeding after Hysterectomy

From the Hysterectomy Recovery Articles List

SHARING IS CARING


woman in red bleeding after hysterectomyI'm almost two weeks post-op and it seems my post-op bleeding has increased. Right after my hysterectomy I didn't have much bleeding. Now, two weeks later, I'm concerned. Do you have any suggestions for me?


Some vaginal bleeding after a hysterectomy is normal, but if you are soaking through one pad and is bright red, you should call your doctor's office.

Many HysterSisters report additional bleeding as a indicator that they have done too much, too soon.

Some time during the 2-4 week timetable you may find some discharge that contains dissolving stitches in your pad or panty.

Your extra spotting and bleeding might be an indicator that the vaginal cuff (replacing your cervix) isn't healing properly and might need a treatment of silver nitrate to speed the healing process and eliminate any granulation issues.

If you experience vaginal bleeding, call your doctor just to be sure it is normal for you.
