Bleeding After TAH

I had a TAH 16 months ago and after 9 weeks of getting back in the grove, everthing has been wonderful compared to how it was before the TAH. I am only 34 so everything has been an interesting adventure. I have started to bleed vaginally the last week and was wondering if that is possibly normal or what could it be from??? Am wondering if I should call the doctor or wait a awhile yet to see if it stops. Please help!!

Bleeding After TAH

Hi there and welcome to Hyster Sisters I'm glad that your recovery went well and that, for the most part, you feel great since your hyst.

Regarding the bleeding: it is not a normal part of the healing process to suddenly start bleeding at 16 months post-op. While it is most likely something benign, like granulation, it definately is something that you need to contact your doctor over. He/she will most likely want to see you and address the issue.

Sending lots of s your way and wishing you the best of luck. Please keep us posted.

Bleeding After TAH

I agree w/ ((Dany)) as we have had many ((Sisters)) pass thru here w/ similiar symptoms & most turne out to be Granulation. YES, pls call your Dr. He needs to make sure what is going on & if it is Granulation Tissue, it can be taken care of in his/her office
Here is some info on this that explains symptoms, treatment ect:

vaginal cuff:

Gynecologic Causes of Pain - External: In Vulva or Vagina:

Vaginal Problems:

Pre-Op - Post-Op Resources: <--contains various post op concerns

Granulation Tissue:

What is Granulation Tissue:

Granulation tissue is a normal healing process after surgery, including the vaginal cuff after hysterectomy. I don't know that it requires very close follow-up in the absence of symptoms such as bleeding, but I would defer to your doctor's call for regular follow-up. Everyone heals at different rates, but most vaginal cuffs heal fairly quickly after hysterectomy, even when the cuff is left open to heal (which is a common way to perform a hysterectomy).

Induction of Granulation Tissue Formation:

Good Luck Pls call your Dr & let us know how it goes....(((hugs)))
