Strange Question

Hello ladies! Was just curious if anyone knew. I had a partial vaginal hyst in 1999 and now have to have both ovaries removed, endometrial tissue burned, and removal of scar tissue/ adhesions. My question is do I need to possibly get pads for bleeding? I know it probably sounds stupid, but I just don't know and I am trying to get stuff ready before Spring Break (April 4-8), because surgery is the following Monday ( April 11).

Thanks and take care,

I dont have an answer for you, but felt I should say, good luck with your upcoming surgery, and this will bump your post to the top, where the ladies that know more about your situation will be along shortly.

Guess I stumped everyone. Will just have to ask GYN at pre-op. Thanks for looking.

(((Shannon))), is your surgery being done vaginally or abdominally?

If it's being done vaginally, then you'd likely have some bleeding afterwards.

If it's being done abdominally, then if you still keep your cervix, you could have bleeding depending on your hormonal balance

I hope this helps.

You might need some light panty liners for the first 2 weeks or so nothing major just some spotting of brownish mucus. That's all I had and it wasn't bad at all.

Best of luck to you!

It is being done abdominally. I was just unsure because I don't have my uterus from my PVH in 1999. I guess I will get a small thing of liners just in case.

I had LSH 2 weeks ago - no one said a word about pads (I didn't know about this site until afterwards) - I just happened to have some and it was a good thing. I actually have some thin panty liners and bought some thicker ones and have had to use both ~ I am having some abnormal bleeding which I am awaiting an answer ~ but I would buy some thicker ones also just in case......

Best of Luck & Speedy recovery,

just in case

I am 3 weeks post-op and still wearing panty liners for the spotting. Mine was done through the stomach. I do have an infection so that may be adding to it. Just to be sure pick up a small box of panty liners.

I had TAH w/BSO, cervix removal as well, and have needed panty liners for spotting for about a week now. My doctor said it may last another week or so with the stitches dissolving. I'd say have some on hand just in can always return them or donate later, but it's difficult to get them in when you can't drive afterwards. Good luck!
