Slight bleeding 8 days after LAVH

Hi ladies. I'm probably worrying for nothing, but I'd stopped bleeding by Wed (after my Friday surgery) but then started again Thur a.m. and am still "spotting". Not much, maybe a quarter-sized amount in 8 hours. I was so lucky, had absolutely no pain and have taken nothing but Motrin since day of surgery. On the downside, I feel so good I've probably been overdoing it. I'm normally a very active person and it is so hard to take it easy. Should I be concerned about the bleeding or just relax for the rest of the w/e and see what happens? I'm worrying that I've strained too much and have pulled stiches loose or somethin. TIA for any help/advice!

Slight bleeding 8 days after LAVH

i had bleeding/spotting for the first few days, and then it stopped, and then started a few days later. i think that is normal. i also had a very easy recovry. i am now almost 8 weeks post op and starting about 3 weeks post op i could hardly tell i had it done. but take it easy and listen to your body. like everyone here says you only have 1 time to heal properly. good luck.

I had a TVH and the dr told me that I may spot for up to 6 weeks. I stopped spotting at about 2 weeks and then it started again in week 3 after I increased my activities. I took it easy for a couple of days and it stopped. As long as it's not gushing and filling pads it really shouldn't be anything to worry about.

I had quite a bit of bleeding until the cath came out this past Monday. On Tuesday, I was able to start using pantyliners instead of pads. I have noticed that when I do more, I bleed more. I'm pretty sure your slight spotting is normal & that you can expect it on & off for at least 6 weeks (at least according to Dr).
