8 weeks post op bright red bleeding today

Hey ladies!
I have been feeling quite good. Admit to getting tired if I am on feet too long, and have learned to listen and just put my feet up, so have been taking it pretty easy.
I finally vacuumed, it was fine and didn't get pain or bleeding this was last week.
Have been able to increase activity a little at a time, feel good cooking now and cleaning up after myself a little.

I am just starting to have a little problem with bowel movements (had an infection which had me on two antibiotic meds that made it easy "to go", lol). So yesterday I went after being constipated for only one day, and am wondering if that would be the cause of this bright red blood. I didn't really have to strain, so can't imagine that's it.

I finally put on a lightdays pad, just to capture the spotting.
And I have a new crampy pain in my left side that feels like it goes right through to the front.

Until now, I have only had that light pinkish watery looking spotting, this looks vibrant and fresh and is there every time I wipe.

I called the health link and they said to watch it over night, if a fever starts up, or the bleeding gets worse to go to hospital.

Just wondering where this blood is coming from this far post op?

Thanks ladies!

I am not sure what would be causing the bleeding, but sounds like they gave you good advice . Hopefully with some rest it will stop and there won't be anything to worry about.

Thankfully, it has turned to the darker stuff, not fresh. The back ache and extreme fatigue has dissipated. So, I've been taking it easy. Just a very clear reminder to resume activity "a bit at a time". Thanks!
