Silver Nitrate ??

I have read several of the previous posts about the silver nitrate application to stop bleeding post op. But, still not sure if this is normal:
I am 6 weeks post op yesterday. On Tuesday the Dr. did an internal exam and did the silver nitrate sticks to try and stop the bleeding. I was still spotting and cramping since the day of surgery. But, now I have even more bleeding! It is so frustrating. It soaks the panty liner. It is again more like a period.
I was so looking forward to no more bleeding post hysterectomy so it is hard to deal with bleeding more than before.
Thanks for any insight! I did have the grayish discharge at first and now it is just bleeding.

Re: Silver Nitrate ??

I am 4 weeks into recovery and still bleeding also....not bright red, but enough to soak thru panty liners occasionally. At my 2 week check up my dr told me she may do the silver nitrate treatment during my 6 week appointment if my bleeding hadn't gotten any better. So I am curious to know what other ladies' experiences are too.
