Re: Post-op bleeding - what to expect?

Had Davinci Monday. Some spotting in hospital and a little when I came home. Was told if you have more than this it may be an indication that you are doing too much. I still keep liners on because you can have spotting even up to 6 weeks. Best of luck to you!

Re: Post-op bleeding - what to expect?

I am 2 weeks post-op and I have been slightly spotting, nothing heavy. It seems from everyone's posts that every body reacts differently.

Re: Post-op bleeding - what to expect?

I just had my lavh on monday. I am no longer spotting anymore. A regular size thin pad will do, that was even too much for me even the day of in the hosptial. Good luck

Re: Post-op bleeding - what to expect?

I don't know if I've EVER worn anything less than an extra-long overnight pad. From the sounds of things, that will be overkill. Thank you all for giving me this feedback; I'm going to go out and buy little pads

Re: Post-op bleeding - what to expect?

Just came to this thread because I'm 3 weeks post op (daVinci, uterus and cervix removed) and read on another thread about one of us who had heavy bleeding that she was told was normal. I go back to work Monday half-time and was panicked that I'm going to have to wear overnight pads constantly just in case! I haven't had any bleeding at all since the first day or two, and that was very light. At my first post op appointment on Monday, my surgeon reminded me not to use tampons, and I asked "Would I want to?" He said there could be some bleeding and I might just naturally go for tampons, but I left without asking how much bleeding there might be. (I have been taking birth control pills for years now to control the heavy bleeding the fibroid was causing, but like so many of us, I can't get the fear of flooding out in public out of my mind.)

Anyway, I see there are many possibilities for what might happen, and have a feeling I'll be going to work with pad on just in case... but I'm encouraged to know so many of us have an easier time of it. Thanks, all y'all!

Sounds like we had similar problems (yucky fibroids). I am 6 weeks post op and haven't had any bleeding since about day 3 post op (maybe day 2). I went back to work after two weeks but I was very careful (let the guys at the office do all the lifting, took elevator instead of stairs and pretty much stayed at my computer most of the day). I didn't have any issues going back to work except being extremely tired every evening (looking back I wish I would have taken the full 4-6 weeks off).

The "fear" of not wearing a pad I believe is completely normal after years of dealing with these issues. Like I said I haven't had bleeding since day 2 or 3 and I just stopped wearing the "just in case" protection at week 5 post op.

Oh my gosh! Taking the elevator instead of the stairs! I hadn't even thought of that - my office is only on the second floor, but I've been taking the stairs since I started there. It'll be another thing to be mindful of! Thanks for the reminder!

Ms. B

I had to laugh! Not bleeding - "it is a difficult concept to get your head around". I bet! I'm looking forward to it, though. :-)
