Total hyster. and some bleeding - is this normal?

They took everything - even though I was hoping and praying to keep my cervix and an ovary. It was all covered with severe endo and adhered to everything else. GYN tried to save my right ovary but said he could not clean it up well enough and I'd just be back to have it removed in a year with pain due to endo etc.

So my vagina is a "blind pouch", as they put it so pitifully. It is sewed shut. I have some blood when I wipe. I had this in the hospital but thought it was from the catheter. It's been there every time when I've gone today. I'm not entirely sure about yesterday but I don't remember it on Saturday or Friday. (it was my DD bday and we had family in etc. I'm sure I did too much, but have I royally screwed up?)

Should I be worried?

I have suture check tomorrow.

I am using some estradol cream vaginally 3xs a week - Dr. said something about helping with incisions, I am due for a dose tonight.

thoughts?

I also have a vaginal cuff which is what it sounds like they did for you..and bleeding is very normal for some time. As long as its not heavy I wouldn't worry about it. If it picks up or you are in more pain then I think it wouldn't hurt to call your doctor.

From what I see on here, it seems pretty common, lots of women on here have bleeding/spotting for weeks after surgery. I am almost a month out and I still spot after doing a little too much, or even sitting for more than an hour. If this becomes heavy though you need to call your doc. Good Luck!

I have the vaginal cuff also and at three weeks out have some light bleeding off and on still. It does not even seem to matter how active I have been and is more likely in the morning when I first get up it seems. I am glad I had a box panti-liners left in the cupboard.
