4.5 weeks post hysterectomy: Sudden spotting, could it be internal stitches?

Hello ladies,

I am 4 weeks and 4 days post op today. I just went to the bathroom and had some blood come out in the toilet. I have been having some pink discharge which my doctor knew about but this is different. Could this be the internal stitches thing I have heard about? Do you actually see stitches in the toilet? I’m a little worried now because it’s a more red blood. Ugh any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Yes, it could be the internal stitches. You're at the stage when increased spotting or bleeding is common, as these stitches begin to dissolve and the healing tissues begin to take over, and some sisters have reported passing stitches into the toilet. Unless you're filling a pad in an hour, gushing blood, or producing clots larger than a quarter, it's nothing to worry about. Best wishes for moving past this stage soon, and for continued health and healing!

That would be my guess. You can read more in Will I Pass Stitches Vaginally? (4th paragraph) and in Spotting vs. Bleeding After Hysterectomy (5th paragraph).

Keep in mind, too, that as we're feeling better in later weeks but before our release dates, our increased activities can also cause more bleeding. Do a check down of your activities, pull back if needed, and remember to build in rest breaks.

Thanks for asking this....I am in the same recovery time frame...same situation. I am doing everything my gyno says. Yesterday, wiped. Light pink blood. Havent seen that since my 5th day. Freaked out. Wondered if my stitches were damaged. Didn't know if that could happen from VERY EASY LIVING since my surgery. Glad to know we are in the window of stitches doing their thing and our tissue healing. You take care!!!!
