Still spotting after silver nitrate treatment

Hello sisters,
This is my first post and am grateful that we have each other and that I miraculously stumbled across this site. I am 5 weeks post-surgery and have been treated already with silver nitrate. Unfortunately, I'm still spotting and wonder if this is "normal"? I also am lacking motivation and interest in my usual activities. My husband is away on travel and I am associating these emotions with missing him. What do you all think? How do I get myself moving in a more positive direction? It could also be just that I'm still tired from recovery. I hope! Anyway, thanks for sharing your posts and I'm looking forward to learning and improving on my life with a little help from all of you.

Re: Still spotting after silver nitrate treatment

Hi still spotting
This is my first post. I am still spotting after my hysterectomy. My operation was in 2007. My doctor keeps coterizing me. I went to another surgeon and he said that when they stitched me up a piece of my falopian tube is hanging down through the stitch and that I could leave it and bleed till menopause or have another surgery to lift it back up. I'm torn. What is silver nitrate?

I am 11 weeks post op and just had my second silver nitrate treatment and have finally stopped spotting this week. I thought it would never end.

Silver nitrate is a bit like getting a chemical burn. It's an effective treatment for warts.

I just had some silver nitrate treatment yesterday on my incision site. I had a TAH on 7 Dec but the wound just wouldn't heal. Went back to doc for my 6 week follow up visit yesterday and showed him the wound. He put some silver nitrate on it which apparently burns off the tissue and dries it up. I presume it works in the same way internally.

He also told me to take more time off work so am written off till end Feb - happy days
