Help! I'm desperate

Hello Sisters, ok, last week I posted that I was having discharge problems and everyone suggested that I call the doc. Well, Monday came and I called, discharge was fine. But now I'm bleeding sometimes red, sometimes brown, both with clots and when I told the doc, she said that it was normal because I may have endometrial tissue that she missed. Is this right? I was in bed all day Sunday with pain and she dismissed that too. I need advice from my hystersisters, anyone having this type of bleeding 6/7 wks post op? What should I do? I'm thinking, find a new doc.
Please, anyone with same problem, let me know.
Thank you sisters.

If you kept your cervix and still have one or both ovaries, you may be having what's known as a mini periods. This is because the cervix, which is simply the opening of the uterus, may contain some of the endometrial lining of the uterus. This lining can respond to the hormones secreted by the ovaries each month and slough off, just like the lining of the uterus did.

Some ladies don't have any problems, but some do have spotting during the time they would normally have a period. Most of the time, it just necessitates a panty liner for a day or two, though I have read of several ladies having substantial bleeding and later having to have further surgery to remove the cervix.

There is an office procedure I've read about which can cauterize the lining of the cervix using a laser technique. You might want to check with your doctor about this procedure if it is mini-periods and they trouble you.

Thank you so much. I did keep my cervix. If it's just "mini-periods", then I'm fine with it. I don't want the doc back in there anytime soon.
