Re: post op spotting

Hi! Did you overdo it today? I have read on several postings that this might occur if you do too much. Hope you feel better soon.

Re: post op spotting

Yes, it also happened to me at 3 weeks. Of course I was finally feeling better and doing more. Today I had my 4 week check up and was told to slow down and rest! Even if you are feeling better you have to take it easy. I am still bleeding, but find if I just rest and do nothing else it stops. I talked to the dr. today and he said if it continues they will use silver nitrate at 6 weeks. But, I also have hematomas happening and have to wait and watch and take it even more easy..I guess. It is so hard though. I am really getting bored out of my mind. It will be exactly 4 weeks tomorrow. Hang in there and remember to rest and relax and take care. Happy healing!! But if it gets heavier they did say to make sure that you call and check in. PS I also had the cramping.

Thank you- I called my doctor and she said it is somewhat normal and that I need to take it easy as well. It is so hard to just rest, I am bored out of my mind. I guess it is time to read one of those books I have been trying to find the time to read.

Re: post op spotting

If you haven't read The Help by Kathryn Stockett it really is a wonderful story that will consume you and keep your mind occupied. I read this one before surgery. And now look for something else to keep me busy.
Best Wishes!

Re: post op spotting

My doc had warned that at around 3 weeks this could happen, it never did, but it would have been normal if it had. Hang in there and get some extra rest if you can...
