Bleeding after sex...9 weeks post-op

This morning after having sex I started bleeding. Bright red blood like a period. The first time we had sex after the TAH was about 2 weeks ago and I had a little bleeding (nothing like this). Should I just wait another week and try it again?

Bleeding after sex...9 weeks post-op

Hi ~

I had sex for the first time last week 11 weeks out and I had bright red blood like a period also that lasted about 36 hrs. During that time it slowed down and turned brown. I called my Dr and he did want to see me. I am going in tomorrow. You might want to check with your Dr. I'll come back tomorrow and let you know what mine said. I'm assuming it's that granulation tissue.

Bleeding after sex...9 weeks post-op

Hi jnkacir -

Well I saw the Dr and it wasn't what I thought. Wah!! What he said was that it *could* be granulation tissue but it also *could* be a tube prolapsed through the cuff. He said the only way to know for sure was to schedule a laporascopy to look and then make the appropriate repairs. I was shocked!! After talking it over he said we could try the nitrate treatment first although he really pushed and wanted me to go for the surgery. I told him I just cannot face that right now! I have had a very complicated recovery as it is. Ugh. So he did the nitrate, which by the way didn't hurt. He said he will repeat it 2-3 times a week for 2-3 weeks and then we will see if that fixes things.

I hope you get better news,

Hey Starbgirl,

Just got back from the doc. He said that I had two little spots that had not healed. He used the nitrate and said that if I have any more problems to give him a call. Sorry to hear that you did not get the same news. Keep me updated.

Starbgirl - I am so sorry. No one wants to undergo another procedure post-op. I hope the silver nitratee words.
JnKacir - I hope the nitrate works for you too!

I am 8 weeks today and am terrified of granulation and having to have the silver nitrate treatment. I am tired of being messed with. Do you think most people discover this problem because of bleeding after sex? My doc checked me at 3 weeks and said I was healing as scheduled. He said to wait for 8 weeks for sex and not to come back until April. I'm scared to attempt sex for fear I will bleed and what that may mean.

I went in last week for my "annual" and first full check since the surgery (10/22/07) and told him of the spotting. He did put a medication on a small area which wasn't fully healed and I've had no issues sense.

I know it's been a while longer for me- but I think it's pretty common that smaller areas don't heal as quickly. (from personal gaterhing of information)
