Drainage and freaking out post hysterectomy

For the past 2 weeks I've had some yellowish tan drainage. Today has been the worse and I am 5 weeks. I went to use the restroom and streamed out of me and made the toliet cloudy. Then I figured it had all come out but a few min later more came out all on my pad. I freaked out and called my dr. Of course it has to be Fri. She said call Mon to see the nurse practitioner because she wont be there. She said nothing about my case before surgery was normal, so I guess this is no different. I am so scared right now. I also have some cramps.

Re: Drainage and freaking out post hysterectomy

Drainage or discharge? When I hear "drainage" I think of wound infection, fistula, maybe gushing - all of which would warrant a doc's visit.

If it's discharge, many Sisters have this post-op as healing takes place, earlier scar tissue dissolves and stitches dissolve. I passed two small blood clots at weeks 4 and 6. If you're soaking a pad bleeding in an hour, that warrants a call to the doctor and a trip to the ER. Otherwise, what you're experience is probably in the range of normal. If you have lingering doubts, it's always fine to call your doctor - you're still a patient until released.
