4 1/2 wks, and maybe alittle setback?

Hi ladies.......I have enjoyed this site immensely. All your words of wisdom have saved me (and my family!) much worry, and encouragement has been wonderful. I really have felt I am on upswing, have gone back to desk job 2 - 4 hours /day for week 5 and 6 (due to necessity with insurance!). Anyways, really feel it gets better each day. However tonight I started having alittle bloody discharge?? I have not had any in 2 weeks. (Oh I had TVH with Burch procedure and vaginal repair. Sorry I do not know all the shorthand). I have felt alittle stronger each day and really have seriously tried to keep a lid on activities for me. No extensive walking (however I did do a short store run earlier, but also did one last week). Is this bleeding normal? When does it become worrisome?? I go for my 3rd Dr. visit on 6/ll. 3rd visit because I came home with a cathetor for a week following surgery. Anyone's experience and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Jeanne,

I'm not sure just what you mean by "due to necessity with insurance", but I'd call your Dr tomorrow and let him know right away. You might need to be resting more off your feet, as you still are early in recovery. Please let us know what your Dr says.

Along with major surgery, you've had bladder and vaginal repairs, and you deserve a good recovery...you're worth it!

My very best to you...

Could be a stitch dissolving, could be granulating scar tissue (which is highly vascularized, and can bleed easily - and is not a serious problem). But I agree you should call your doctor, and maybe get checked in person. Taking things easier never hurt, either.

Go slowly to recover quickly.

I hope it's "nothing".
