When does the bleeding stop? TVH/Bladder sling

My doctor didn't really provide much in the way of post op instructions so now I'm wondering how long I should bleeding after my tvh/bladder sling. Also, is it normal to have a bad smell? Sorry for the nasty details....

I don't know how long you will bleed. Maybe someone else can help with that.

But my Dr. told me I'd have a slight yellowish dishcharge with a bad smell. He said that is from the stitches healing. I have that too, so I hope you don't feel so bad.

Everyone seems to bleed differently if at all. I'm one of the lucky ones who is still bleeding 6 1/2 wks post op!

I did notice an odd odor a few weeks out but it went away after several days.

I'm hoping any day the bleeding will stop completely.

I had very small amount of bleeding for about two weeks, like a light period which tapered to more of a darker discharge (sorry TMI)!

I had some bleeding with a bad smell for 3 weeks. After the bleeding stopped the smell went away.

glad I'm not the only one

I am now 13 days post TVH/AP repair/sling and I'm still bleeding quite a bit. I've been checked out twice (cauterized with silver nitrate yesterday), and it still hasn't stopped. Neither doctor I saw seemed to worry (my doc is on vacation this week). I haven't had any bad smell, though. If you are concerned, call your doctor.
I'm ready to get rid of these pads!!!!
