vaginal bleeding after hysterectomy

I had a hysterectomy done in March 06. I have had some vaginal bleeding the last couple days. Not to much, but enough to have to wear protection again. Could anyone tell me if they have experienced this at all. I called the RN's hotline, and was told by a RN that it was nothing to worry about it, but keep track of it. This didn't help me much, any others had this problem?

Thank you

I'm sorry you're experiencing this.

The very best thing you can do is make an appointment to get checked out by your doctor. There can be a number of different causes and only your doctor can determine whether it's something that needs attention or not.

Will you let us know what you find out? Sending all good wishes!

vaginal bleeding after hysterectomy

what type of surgeries did you ladies have? did you keep your ovaries? if you did, could it be something like a mini period? I am just guessing, the best thing to do is call or go and see your doctor to make sure, like pooodle said, it could be many things.....

please, let us know what he/she says....

i had a laproscopic surgery. kept ovaries and cervix, just the uterus was taken, and it seems like a mini period, lasted 2 days, but hardly anything on the pad, just after wiping. seems to have stopped now

It's very unlikely to be a mini-period as these will start soon after surgery ~ in the majority of cases ~ and not two years plus down the line. They usually last for a "period" length of time, too.

If it happens again please check with your doctor, to be on the safe side.
