I'm 5 weeks post op from TVH and just got back from my dr. appt. I had had some bleeding starting a few days ago that hadn't been there before. Turns out that a few of the stitches hadn't dissolved yet and were irritating my incision site. That is what was causing the spotting. She took them out, and said the spotting should be gone by a week or so. So I guess it is not unusual to have them in there still at 5 weeks or even later. By the way, there was very little pain involved in having the stitches in still, just some irritation "up there".
I had what looked like little blue knots come out on the paper when i wiped, they started coming out at about 4 weeks and I think they are all gone now, the last having come out about a week ago at 7 weeks. It was a bit weird at the time but it was nice to know things were healing up inside
I am 10 days post op and I had my cevix sewn shut..fallopian tubes falling out in during/after they closed my belly. at my 3rd post op so far she was going to take it out yesterday....i asked her not to after a VERY painful pelvic exam....can it dissole in the cervix too or does it have to be taken out?
