Bleeding or spotting after TAH?

Hi. I was wondering if anyone knows if you have any spotting or bleeding after a TAH or is that the END of that once and for all?

Yes I have heard there may be some bleeding or spotting after a TAH surgery during recovery. So don't throw out your pads as you may need them after your surgery.

Re: Bleeding or spotting after TAH?

My Dr said it is different for everyone, but for me I just had light bleeding day of and spotting the first time I walked around. After that...nothing!!
I guess occasionally spotting for the first week or so can be normal. I would prepare for the worst and hope for the best!!!

Re: Bleeding or spotting after TAH?

I am on day 10 post op (TAH/BSO) and have only had one little bit of spotting. It was on either day 6 or 7 post op and I probably just overdid a bit that day. Other than that...nothing! I didn't even need a pad post op.

Good luck!

I am almost 6 weeks out and had only minor spotting the first two days. Nothing since then, but I'm still a little afraid to get rid of those last pantyliners!!

That is a great question!
When you say spotting -
are we talking about panty liners ar super plus pads?

I used a pantyliner after I found some light blood on my toilet paper...but nothing ever appeared on that one pantyliner. But I plan on keeping them for a while...just in case.

Re: Bleeding or spotting after TAH?

I had to use a regular pad for the first 3 weeks, had a discharge that was too much for a pantyliner. I had extensive adhesions so a lot of cutting, significant bleeding after surgery in hospital, developed 2 hematomas, one burst and we suspect it was leaking prior and could have been the cause of some of the discharge. All in all, keep a supply of pads and liners on hand just in case. I am 4 1/2 weeks post op now, had not had anything for the past week, today I have spotting...never a dull moment!

I had some spotting in the hospital. But I'm keeping the pads and pantyliners until August to make sure. I would hate to have to go buy some more if I give them away now. But I'm hoping not to have any more spotting or bleeding.

I had spotting for two days, requiring panty liners.

The only unusual discharge was some blue tint they used during the surgery, but it was minor and only lasted for a few days.
