Continued vaginal discharge 8 weeks post hysterectomy?

I was scheduled to have my uterus and possibly one ovary removed about 8 weeks ago after a diagnosis of cysts and 4 large fibroid tumors. However, due to the discovery of sever endometriosis, everything was removed. My 2 hour surgery took a little more then 3 hours, but the good news is, she was able to remove it with a horizontal incision instead of a vertical one! Everything went well until I was re-admitted to the hospital with a post op abscess hematoma a week later. Since then, everything has gone well with my recovery and I'm going back to work tomorrow. The only thing on my mind is that I'm still having vaginal discharge. My surgeon says to monitor it. But, I'm very worried it's going to lead to something bad. It is not heavy, painful or have a foul odor. What is causing it, why is happening and how long should this last?

Re: Continued vaginal discharge 8 weeks post hysterectomy?

Your surgeon's advice is sound: a discharge which isn't heavy, painful nor has a foul odor is not indicative of infection or a setback. Often it's granulation (scar tissue over an unhealed area which is slowing things down), a stubborn stitch, or simply slow healing. Often if a discharge lingers 8-10 weeks, a doctor will want to address anything which is causing it. A stubborn stitch can be removed, granulation can have silver nitrate applied, and if it's slow healing sometimes vaginal estrogen might be an option.

Since your surgeon said to monitor, give it another week or two. If it continues, put another call in.
