surprise complications-blood clot,blood transfusion

Hi. I had a vaginal hyst. on Jun3 27 and was surprised to also have a blood clot in the pelvic area and needed a blood transfusion. I hadn't seen any discussion of this. My Dr. didn't really see a need for me to give blood ahead of time. So, Seems to me like the recovery time is somewhat lengthen be this set back. One day at a time, and thankful for the post op checklists.

I think blood clots are one kind of complication, not common among us as a group but not uncommon as far as complications go. I had bad pain and difficulty urinating, and they did an ultrasound, looking for a clot. I didn't have one, but evidently it's something that can happen.

Sorry. Just take it easy and accept a longer recovery period.

Albion, I had a blood clot that grew behind my incision on my belly and broke through two weeks after surgery. It was a definite setback as I had to be admitted and have blood transfusions like yourself, I also became anemic. It is a compilcation that the docs watch for but is not a common one. This added on a week to my recovery and still have a small opening in my incision that has to be cleaned twice a day but is healing nicely now. It scared the you know what out of me but it all came out ok.

Well, us anemic sisters are the lucky ones needing more time off! Gotta trust that it will all work out.
