I'm bleeding a little more than when I came home

October 27, 2011 – I had surgery (TVH). Had on a pad at the hospital and the blood got less and less.
October 27, 2011 – Came home and didn’t have to wear a pad.
November 2, 2011 – Had to put on a pad. I started bleeding a little more. Not much, but enough to mess up a pad a little. Maybe it was because of straining gas pains. Not sure.
November 3, 2011 – I’m still bleeding a little. There was some dripping in the toilet a little when using the bathroom. Not bad though. There was about the same as yesterday. Not as much tenderness when peeing like yesterday. No pain meds today.
November 4, 2011 – Last night before bed, my back on the right left side started hurting and I took 2 Tylenol. That helped and I went to sleep. This morning I woke up with pain like cramps. I used the bathroom and there was more blood on my pad. Not a lot, but more than usual. I took 2 more Tylenol. I was going to call the dr. today. But decided to try to get onto this site again and post this. I have had the hardest time getting on here and I really need ya'll now. Please help.

Re: I'm bleeding a little more than when I came home

Bleeding on and off for the first six weeks following surgery is pretty normal. I'd go days with none and then bleed for a day or so and back to nothing. I was informed when I called that is all part of the process and as long as I didn't have severe cramping, fever, bleeding thru a pad an hour not to be concerned. I noticed I would spot when I over did it too. Too many trips up and down the stairs, too much walking, to much just getting up and down throughout the day in general. Since you are so early in your recovery I wouldn't be concerned unless any of the things I mentioned previously become an issue. Rest is so very important so make sure to get plenty and don't overdo.

Good luck

Thank you so much Tracy. And I think, as I just read, since I wasn't cut on the outside,,,,,,,,Thank God,,,,,,,,I don't realize how much I really need to rest.
