How much should one bleed?

I am scheduled for a vaginal hyst on 2/23/05. Anyone know how much a person bleeds after that procedure? I am being obsessive compulsive about being prepared becuase I am alone and have no one to "run" to the store for more pads! I want to make sure I have an ample supply.
Thanks,
Danikimm

How much should one bleed?

I had a vaginal hysterectomy almost three weeks ago, and I have had very little bleeding. . .although there is enough each day to require using a pad.

Good luck -- hope all goes well.

I had a TVH two weeks ago. Had blood on the pad in the hospital the first day, went home the next day and used thin maxi's for about three days but had very little discharge and it wasn't blood. Now I'm just using a panty liner and most of the drainage has stopped. Good luck with your surgery, I'm feeling great after two weeks!

Hi there,

I had a LAVH 2 weeks ago as well and I haven't had anything that a thin pantyliner couldn't handle. Mostly light spotting the first week and now it's even less than that.

Good luck!!

Vaginal Bleeding

I had a vaginal partial hyst about three years ago. I almost bled to death because my Dr screwed up, but you should only bleed for about a couple of weeks at most and generally it's light. You should be able to use normal pads. I would stock up anyway though with pads of different sizes as som days there may be more and a larger pad may make you feel more protected.

Good luck!!!

Had an abdominal surgery, didn't spot one bit at all.
