Bleeding after da vinci hyst

I had a partial da vinci hyst on the 16th which makes me 12 days post op. I had some light bleeding for about 3 or 4 days and then it stopped. Well yesterday I was feeling really good and thought it would be ok to lift my 20lb 5 month old. I lifted on her on/off for about 2 hours and then she went to bed. I noticed shortly after that I am bleeding bright red again. Do you think I did too much by picking her up so soon? I am still bleeding today.

Re: Bleeding after da vinci hyst

Yep, it sounds like you overdid it a bit! Probably too much lifting for sure. But it is hard not to lift our little ones!

Also, a partial hysterectomy means you retained your cervix. Having both your cervix and ovaries can allow for mini periods as endometrial lining can be left with the cervix. Did you have a partial or did you have a complete--meaning removal of the entire uterus with cervix?

Regardless, bright red bleeding that fills a pad an hour is a reason to seek medical advice ASAP. Otherwise, try to take it easy and cut back on some of your activities.

As always, if you have concerns do not hesitate to touch base with your doctor!
