Should I be concerned

I am 4 weeks post op today. I have had light spotting off and on that has been brownish and pinkish since surgery date. It has been a fairly easy recovery so far. I had a post op checkup last Monday. MD did a little silver nitrate. Spotting went to grayish and then almost completely stopped....until today. I have been a little active, but nothing major.....I had some brighter pink, actually a small amount of red would better describe it. Should I be concerned? I've had a few twinges, but no major pains.

I've been trying to lay around and use my ice pack and just relax this evening.

What do you think?

Should I be concerned

I would think that it was from you being more active today.Is it enough to cover a pad?Bright red color? If not, I'd just keep an eye on it and if it gets worse..........then call your Dr.
If you are REALLY concerned, call your Dr and ask.
Good luck and I hope it's nothing serious!

It was kind of bright, but not a bunch. I'm on my way to bed, so will see how it goes. If bright in the a.m. will call MD. Since I posted, I used the bathroom and saw three stitches. So could be related to them melting away, maybe?

Thanks for your response.

It is possible that they are disolving(which I would say is the most likely!) and then maybe you did too much and pulled on them a bit to much.Good luck and I pray it goes away and you have no more problems.If it's still there in the am, a call to your MD is in order!!!!

Thanks for your posts, they helped me to relax and get a good night's sleep.....which I must have needed! Things are back to their usual pinkish brown this a.m. I bet the MD has to do another silver nitrate treatment next time I see him. Thanks again for easing my mind.
