Bleeding at 6 months post hysterectomy

I am almost 6 months post op and had some bleeding today. I have had a couple of stressful and more than normal active last couple of days. We moved our son into an apartment today. I did help carry lighter boxes and pushed carts. I did not do any heavy lifting though. I did feel fullness in my pelvic area when we got home tonight, so I checked and noticed some internal swelling and some blood. I am trying not to freak out. I took some ibuprofen and am going to take it easy tonight and this weekend and will call the doctor on Monday to get checked. I guess I just need some reassurance right now.

Re: Bleeding at 6 months post hysterectomy

It's possible that it was the activity. The last time I had swelling and mild cramps from overdoing it was at 5 months after kicking up the intensity of an abs routine in a fitness class.

At 6 months, bleeding / spotting has a cause - perhaps it is still some granulation that your activities caused to come loose from the pelvic pressure. Because there is a reason for it, it's wise to let your doctor know as you will do. Even if you stop bleeding by then, an internal check is probably a good idea for peace of mind and / or confirmation.

on taking it easy the rest of the weekend and monitor. If bleeding gets heavy, you know to go to the ER. Update us on what your doctor says or what is diagnosed.
