Hi Yankeesfan
Spotting can happen when there is dryness and also if there is granulation. Sometimes that doesn't show up until a few months out from surgery, so it is possible that is what's causing yours. You will need to get in to see your dr to find out for sure what is causing it.

There are some other things that can cause bleeding too, but your dr will be able to tell you for sure what your situation is. I hope this will be better for you soon. Let us know what you find out.

Well I do know that I am not dry in there and I am almost positive that I have no left over granulation.. I have had an internal not too long ago.. about a month ago I had two drops of spotting and I canceled my appiontment and now here I am again. I have pain where my ovaries are, weird.

I guess I should make another appiontment soon huh. Thanks again for the help. Have a wonderful day.

did you keep your cervix and ovaries?
i spot/bleed when i ovulate...i have since my son was born 10 years ago. it continued after my lsh..but isnt a problem. you should definitely make an appt and talk to your dr about it. also keep track of when you are bleeding so you can tell him.

I have only my ovaries left.. no more uterus or cervix. They stitched the top of the vaginal canal closed.. it took a longer time for the incision to heal..
I made an appiontment for tomorrow. The Obgyn said he wants to send me for blood work and some other tests. I guess its not normal to have ovary pain..and spotting. Thanks for the support and help ladies.

Spotting 7 months later.

Hi. I am 6 months out and having similar problems with pain. I wsa doing fine for quite awhile but with increased activity I get pretty sore still. A hot pack works for me (and some Advil).And last night I noticed spotting! Very weird. I was thinking maybe a UTI? But I am not having any real symptoms related to that . I had a coughing fit from being sick with the flu last fall and I notice that I still get very sore from that sort of thing if I get a cold or any hard coughing. Is it possible to irritate something still? I don't have a cervix any more so where could that blood be coming from?

Anyway, best wishes to you. If I continue to have problems I will speak with my doctor.~K

Hi itsmekath2
Welcome to Hystersisters! I'm sorry you're also dealing with spotting and pain. I'll just add here that it can take six months to a year to fully heal from a hysterectomy and get to where you can do things with no pain. It took me at least 8 months.

I don't believe a UTI would give you this type of spotting. I have had my share of them too and had significant blood in my urine, but not spotting all on it's own from that. It's more likely you have something else going on.

In addition to the things I shared with (((Yankeesfan))) I'll add this link that discusses Post op bleeding and some of the other causes of bleeding several months down the line. I hope you'll have your dr check out the spotting so you can know exactly what's happening. Keep us posted on you progress.
's, Rita

Spotting 7 months later.

Thank you so much! I think it was from all the coughing. I pulled or irritated something, maybe old scar tissue. I am going to keep an eye on it and if it continues, I will go in. It seems that every time I get a bad cold and cough alot ( well, it has only happened twice since surgery) I get super sore, like right after surgery. It was the spotting that threw me because I don't have a cervix anymore. But that is one place that gets sore if I over do.

Thanks again.~K

5 mths post-op and spotting

Hi there all!
I had my tvh in August and I too have spotting and pain were ovaries are (especially on left side). I went to the DR on Wed. and gave them a urine sample & the nurse tested it & said there was white blood cells in my urine. She said I was bleeding because I probably have a bladder infection. Which I knew I didn't have one because I have no burning when I urinate. Anyway, the DR came in & examined me and said I had scar tissue. He pulled it out & he said it was falling apart and he would send it off to the pathologist to make sure it is scar tissue.
I then asked him what else could it be and he said sometimes the fallopian tube could fall out. I found out today that my urine culture came back normal which I knew it would be, but the question I asked the nurse was why is there white blood cells in my urine? she said because of the scar tissue. Does this make any sense to anyone else because it makes no sense to me because of the fact that the DR isn't even 100% sure if it's even scar tissue. Can't wait to fill normal again. Any advice would really be appreciated.

Elevated White Cells indicates an infection... but if they tested your urine and it came back normal then I am guessing your white cells where probably in the normal range..
When you say he pulled off the scar tissue.. exactly what do you mean? I had scar tissue but he put a burning solution on and it was extremely painful for me. I had a TVH as well... when i started this post I was scared out of my mind over my spotting.. I have an ultrasound and blood work coming up.. as he felt a mass on my ovary and my ovaries are not working right since the surgery. If you don't mind, how is it possible for your fallopian tubes to come out when after a TVH the opening is closed?? I am confussed.
I wish you good luck.. hope your feeling ok. There is nothing more worse then trying to recover from a Hysto only to find out you have more complications..
