Will I Ever Not Wear a Pad Again?

I am 4 weeks post op and still needing to wear a pad due to a discharge. It ranges from brownish in color to a light orange/red. Is this normal this long after surgery? One time there is nothing on the toilet paper, the next time there is! I just don't want to wear pads anymore!!!m

Anyone else have this experience?

Thanks!

Personally, I'm 8 weeks post op, and I've only worn a pad for maybe 7 days total. I haven't had much discharge at all, but I have had a nasty smell. My doctor told me discharge varies for all women, but might not hurt to give yours a call.

I am 4 weeks post op ( may 18th) and I still need a pad every day. Not too much discharge but I am spotting and just started bleeding again last night. Started out brownish and dark but as today it is bright in color. I dream of the day I can go with a pad of any kind!

I know what you mean about the nasty smell - I can hardly stand myself sometimes. My doctor said it's normal but I look forward to the day I don't stink anymore! Thanks for sharing your experiences - it is helpful!

Hey,
I know what you are going through. I had my hysterectomy on May 29 and I am still having a discharge. I go back to my doctor on thursday June 18 and I am going to ask if this is normal.
