How Long-- total abdominal hysterectomies (TAH's) only please!

I also had no discharge, 8 weeks seems a bit long to be wearing a pad, but if you've been in touch with your doctor, then I think you are okay, as long as you are having no pain or fever. I hope the gunk will be cleared out soon!

I had my Hyster on July 17th 2007. I too was very fortunate, I woke up without a pad and never had to wear one for spotting. My Dr told me I didnt bleed much and I didnt even bruise where I had my incision. Totally weird, since just a year before I was border line anemic. I say check with your Surgeon and GOOD LUCK.. HAPPY HEALING!

I had my TSHBSO on 12/21 and except for the pad they had on me at the hospital I haven't needed one. I am at week 3 post op today. My question is, am I supposed to have a discharge when the cuff stitches disolve? If I don't is THAT a cause for concern, or can the body absorb the stitches rather than discharge them vaginally??? - Suzyq

Hi , I guess you and I are the exception to the rule. I had a discharge for exactly 5 weeks but my doctor told me to expect this and that it was perfectly normal. I also had a bout of heavier bleeding at about 2 weeks. I had a lot of constipation and actually "popped" a stitch. My doctor checked it out and said I was still healing fine but it might have contributed to spotting for a little bit longer. We all heal differently and at different rates. As long as you are in touch with your doctor I wouldn't worry.

s and Blessings, Lisa
