Spotting/Bleeding over 1 yr after Hysterectomy

I hate to admit it, but I haven't called my doc about whatever discharge I'm having. I have some on days, then I won't. Having absorbent pads is good, but it makes seeing what I'm having difficult. It's that little. I finally just wore some new white panties without a pad, so that I could see this, for sure. This seems to be a slight, brownish like something. I wonder if it could be urine, but I don't know when it happens, if that's it.

At 7 weeks, my doc said that I was completely healed.

I'm taking my son to get 2 wisdom teeth out tomorrow, so I'll call on Friday. Wisdom teeth are common, I know, but he has a cyst which might be a tumor, though the doc said that it's probably benign.

thanks.

Spotting/Bleeding over 1 yr after Hysterectomy

Went to the doctor this morning and she found a small spot of granularity. She did the silver nitrate trick and says to not do much for a week. From an observer's perspective the total time to perform the look-see and the Silver Nitrate was about 3 minutes.

From the patient perspective it seemed like hours went by before she was done. PAIN? It was more painful for her to poke around with the cotton swab then it was for the Silver Nitrate at least while on the table. I will let you know about the pain, if any, if noticed over the next few days. As usual currently I am not comfortable after leaving the doctor's office, but it will usually get better shortly.

I was told to relax a little for the next week, no sex and no working out.

She said it was a very small granularity, although I was filling my pads with blood. Even a little can bleed a lot I guess. Otherwise she said everything looked really good, I am hoping this is the end of it.

My best to all,

Candelin

lovetowalk,

My doctor didn't seem too phased by the granularity even after 2 year after post op. She swabbed me with Silver Nitrate and told me to take it easy for a week, that was about it.

Things to consider about your bleeding: (Based on my research only, please take this as is, I am not a doctor!)
  • If you are bleeding is menstral related it will recur on a cycle and will last from 7-15 days, noted in the site so far.
  • Menstral related bleeding after a hyster. is reason for concern on several levels. Endo in the V. is different than granularity, and will bleed on the monthly basis. Endo bleeds when the estrogen levels are high in your body which is during your monthly cycle. Endo in this location will not just go away, and will likely spread in this area over time, making the bleeding get worse as well. I am not sure how they handle endo in the V..
  • If you are bleeding is not menstral related it can be a granularity, which means activity and sex can agrivate it. This also means that it may not heal completely on its own, and Silver Nitrate may be the easy solution.

Overall it seems that each of these is really more of an inconvenience than anything else. The biggest note, is that it may not stop, or it may just recur occasionally. The good news is that it looks like it is easily treatable and once treated will not occur again. (Note it can take several treatments to completely take care of it.)

Warmest,

Candelin

Spotting/Bleeding over 1 yr after Hysterectomy

hi, I called my doc's office yesterday and was surprised that i got an appt for the afternoon. my doc checked everything ... used a cotton swap looking for blood. No granulation, no bleeding, no nothing. I asked if it could be urine. Basically, urine is not the color of blood. The whole upshot is that nothing is wrong. Nothing to worry about. This is good, but anything that resembles blood seems to trouble me. Of course, that was my cancer symptom.

My doc said that my vaginal tissues are thin, due to no estrogen and that might be part of my possible discharge or whatever it is. There's nothing to do about this, due to my cancer.

I talked my someone who had cancer and he said that he could totally understand that I would be concerned with any symptom, no matter how small.

My doc said that it was good to check out anything and to call if I have any concerns. If not, my next appt is in June, for a 6 month check-up.

thanks.
