Vault Hematoma?

I called my doc due to multiple symptoms that pointed to an infection. He said he thought I might have a vault hematoma that is infected. He swabbed my vagina to test (the discharge) and sent me for a CBC. He also scheduled me for a C-Scan for next Tuesday of my pelvic region. He gave me a high dose of Cipro and told me I should feel a little better everyday. I am going to call him at the end of the week if I am not feeling better. He told me if it isn't the vault hematoma, then he said the next possibility is an adhesion may have taken place to my intestines and that I am leaking intestine contents--gross I know. This is in his mind because of the smell and color of my discharge. Hopefully things will get better as the week goes on. Anybody hear of a vault hematoma?

No, but I'm sorry your suffering complications. I had a post op infection at the cuff diagnosed by CT. I ended up having further infection complications and the result was awful. Please keep a close eye on your infection to ensure it gets cleared up. I think they can be tricky because you cannot see them.

Good luck and I'll keep you in my prayers,

I too am sorry that you are going through this. Please keep a very close eye on all your symptoms. Leaking intestinal fluids is very dangerous and could cause you to go septic.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Let us know how you are.
