bleeding...I'm scared...(updated)


thank you so much for your posts and concern You are all WONDERFUL!!!

to make a long story short, I called my doctor last night and explained everything I was feelling....he said that it was probable stress related with a bit of take my blood pressure, rested and drink lots of liquids, my BP was high, I drank lots of liquids, and my dizzines went away THANK GOD!!!! I was so worried he was going to tell me to go to the ER!!

this morning I feel much better, rested good last night, no more lightheaded nor dizzy, the bleeding is still there, but the same, not more, but not less....I will keep an eye on that. if anything he said to go in to his office this morning and he'll check me out.

thank you for your kind words of wisdom.....this site is awasome for me and for so many others.!!!

Hi 4hisglory
I'm glad the dizzyness is better. I just want to add that some light bleeding on and off during recovery is generally considered normal. Most women have some light bleeding when the stitches start to dissolve. I had some light bleeding start during the second week. As your body heals there is often discharge of some kind.

It can be confusing because it can also be a sign of doing too much. It's always best to be cautious, but I wanted to reassure you a little bit. I'm glad your dr is being attentive. Keep us posted on how you do.
's, Rita

just a little update: the dizziness went away completely the first night, I dont know what that was all about

my bleeding is a little on the lighter side, but still there. Iam resting some still, and I think that really helped. I see my doctor on friday.

bleeding...I'm scared...(updated)

I am 2 weeks out from subtotal hystercetomy and started bleeding last week. My Doctor says it is normal to have some bleeding because there is heaing still going on. I was surprised by the bleeding because everyone that I talked to beforehand never mentioned it happening. I even asked a couple of people if they did but they said no. I think every person's body heals differently. Remember, we did go through a major surgery, even if it was laproscopically. Definitley ask your doctor though.

bleeding after hysterectomy

After a visit with my Dr. he wanted me to stay out of work (after I'd been back 2 weeks) for another 2 weeks. I was already out for 6 weeks and felt if I didn't heal then what is 2 more weeks going to do. He said I was not healing and used silver nitrate because the blood was not clotting. I have a visit with him in another 2 mos at which time he will do a pap test if I am healed. Can it get any worse?

post bleeding

I too had everything removed. When I visited the Dr after 7 weeks because of bleeding he said I was a slow healer. He used silver nitrate (I guess to cortarise where the stitches are). I am still using premarin cream to help the situation. I do not take vitamins, but he encouraged me to.

traflay; about the bleeding, my doctor said that its normal to have a light bleeding during recovery (approx. 6 weeks), as long as its not heavy what they mean by heavy, is if you soak a pad in less than one hour....

they also say that the spotting or light bleeding could also be the stitches that are healing.....

but if not sure, ask your doctor to be on the safe side....
