Hello, I'm new and have a few questions - not asking for medical advise but, opinions. I had BSO LAVH almost year ago. To start with, I had always had heavy bleeding durring periods. finally I started to go thru menepause, had no periods for 6 months. Then out of the blue - or should I say red? I had a heavy 3 month period, -yes 3 month. Durring the 4th month of bleeding is when I had my surgery. Since the beginning of the bleeding, I gained weight, from that time to now is 40lbs. Diet after diet, different hrt, working out, all of it nothing helped. I quit the hrt b/c I kept gaining weight, hot flashes and night sweats were still there so it wasn't helping anyway. Now almost a year later, I have what I think is a bladder infection EXCEPT my urine is not red, no burning, only sign is that I only have blood when I wipe. Has anyone had a problem like this??? Of course my Dr. is unavailable b/c I moved 2 weeks ago 1500 miles from my Dr. New state, new city, and now to try to find a Dr. that is sympathetic to my needs. I have an appointment today, but it's like playing lotto until you find the right dr.

Hi there I'm so sorry you're dealing with this issue, a year down the road. And finding a new doctor is always a heartache

I must admit, though, that I'm relieved that you have an appointment with a doctor, since sudden, new symptoms should always be attended to by a doctor.

It is possible that you are not dealing with a bladder infection after all: it could be vaginal dryness, due to lack of hormones.

Sending lots of s your way. Hopefully your new doctor will have some answers for you. Please, do keep us posted.
