Re: scared to death!! spotting 7yrs after hyst!

Try not to panic! There are a whole list of reasons for spotting/bleeding post hysterectomy--vaginal dryness, infection, bladder issue, endometriosis, bowel issue, and more.

I hope you have been able to get in touch with your doctor to figure out what is going on!

I know post hysterectomy bleeding can be scary! I have had it a few times. A couple times it was just a tiny bit following intercourse and the doctor decide there may have been some irritation. The other times for me it was related to a bladder issue. But my heart stopped a bit each time!

in there and let us know what you find out!

Re: scared to death!! spotting 7yrs after hyst!

I had the same thing happen to me 7 years after hyst (TVH) and then at 9 years afterwards. The first time the gyn said he found a cyst in the vagina and so he cut it out. Didn't bleed again until 2 years later at which time they did an u/s (negative) and then a pelvic CT scan which showed pelvic mass and cysts around one ovary. Laparoscopy showed widespread endo which was likely the cause and ovaries and tubes were removed with mass and endo cleanup.

Don't panic though. Since you already had endo, it's likely that you might have some remaining. I didn't know I had endo until the BSO though it explained years of pelvic pain.

Are you on any HRT?

they also are testing me with a 2hr GTT test? guess it will test how my body breaks down sugar? also said i have a grade 2 cystocele. have to back to the uyro.(knew that) so she said dince i have had SOOO many uti's would be best to ask the uyro dr. to do a cystocopy. so it sounds like shes pointing me in the right direction. wow thought at this point in my life i would be done with all of this.oh and my primary dr called and said i have to have the b12 injections INDEFINALY! ugh im FALLING APART! AGAIN.. or should i say still!
