No bleeding post op, still need pad?

I haven't had any spotting or discharge at all after my LSH Thursday morning. Do you think I still need a pad? Did any of you have bleeding later even though you didn't have any at first? I'm thinking I could just use a panty liner in case.

Good morning,
I too have had no bleeding or discharge but I do put on a pantyliner just in case.

I haven't had any spotting or discharge since my LSH on 3/5. The doc seemed to be pleased when she saw me at 2 weeks because it meant she did a good job with cauterizing and I hadn't strained anything. I even managed to get through my usual menstruation time with no discharge, so I suspect I'm not going to even suffer from the possibility of mini-periods (having kept my cervix).

I had my LSH / LSO on Feb 13, I am six weeks post-op and have not had any bleeding or discharge at all. I have been pad free for 6 weeks. I am so happy. Take care.

That sounds great I hope this continues no spotting . I'll wear a panty liner in case and bring a pad with me in case also. Thanks for the responses.

I had spotting after 10 days post-op and lasted about a month. I wasn't prepared, so had to go to the store to buy some pads.

I wonder if it makes a difference since I still have my cervix so there is no vaginal cuff with stitches which I would think would cause more bleeding as that heals and the stitches disolve. They cauterized my cervix inside there after removing the uterus also. Also I have no incisions in the vagina at all. I just have the little belly button one and a little one on each side close to my hips.

I do have two bags of pads in case I start bleeding. After reading about post-op results on here and the bleeding I decided to keep all my pads that I had for after.

I don't have my cervix and still have enough watery discharge to wear a liner with very occasional pinkness. I too was going to get rid of all my dri-liners (3 boxes) right away....good thing I kept it because I only have one box left!
