Re: spotting after total hysterectomy

I also am am 4wks post op for a TAh & BOS on Wednesday and am having slight spotting although i would say it is old blood as dark brown and not red. my mum also had this op several years ago and has assured me its perfectly normal, It doesnt stop you worrying though. I have read a few things and people seem to say it can last upto 6 weeks. I dont think we have anything to worry about.

Me, too. 4 wks post op today and woke up to light pink spotting and cramps. I've been reading this website every day for help. It really does answer a lot of questions.

I am 4 weeks postop and have had bright red spotting the whole time. Been to the doctor a few times. It just seems that some of us do this while healing and it just takes time.

Re: spotting after total hysterectomy

I spotted bright red blood from week 2 to week 6 after my TAH/BSO. It stopped 2 days ago (Surgery was 1/25). I went to dr today for 6 week post op. She thinks the spotting is over (most of the time it is the stitches dissolving that causes the spotting), but she did use silver nitrate to cauterize the vaginal cuff in several places.

She said all the stitches in the vaginal cuff were dissolved and I was released to do what I wanted as long as I take it slowly..
