Vaginal Cuff Tear - Requiring Emergency Surgery

I am 10 weeks post-op TAH and Saturday night starting bleeding and had pain so bad I was doubled over. I called by GYN, who told me to go to the ER. Once there, the on-call GYN examined me and said that I had torn my vaginal cuff and my bowels were protruding into my vagina. I had to have emergency surgery to repair the tear. They had to go through another abdominal incision, requiring 18 staples and hundreds of internal stitches. The healing process is the same as my TAH, so I am back to square one! Has anyone else experienced this? My GYN and the on-call GYN said they had never seen this before. Worst of all, they made it sound like I had done something wrong (even asked if I had rough sex, inserted foreign objects in my vagina, or used illicit drugs...the answer to all being NO). I am finally back from the hospital and hope I am not the only one with the problem.
