How long do you bleed after

Does anyone know how long you bleed after a TAH?

Re: How long do you bleed after

Everyone is different, so it is hard to answer. But, if my understanding is correct you should not bleed a lot.

For me, with my TAH BSO I had a small amount of bleeding for about a week after surgery - a kin to heavy spotting. But, I also had discharge (clear as well as yellow) for six weeks post op. I was told to expect this. A moderate pad took care of flow - I changed once in the morning and once at night, and sometimes changed a third time during the day.

I had a DaVinci TAH BSO done in July. Mild spotting the first 24 hours then nothing for about 2 weeks. I then had about 4-5 days of light bleeding. That was it!

How long do you bleed after

That doesn't seem too bad. I'm trying to think of every detail. Ugh! Surgery is in 10 days...wish it would be here already. Tired of waiting and anticipating!

The waiting was for me, by far, the worst part. First two days were rough, but after that it was a piece of cake. Are you having it done robotically?

Re: How long do you bleed after

I had a TAH/BSO, with a long vertical incision.
I had a tiny bit of bleeding the day after surgery.... and after that I have not had a single drop - I kid you not!

I did buy pads beforehand, thinking I'd need them and waiting to see if I would, but after 9 weeks I guess I can safely say I won't need them! The internal exam. at my 6 week check up showed my vaginal cuff would had healed "perfectly", I was told.
My incision, which was closed with dissolving stitches, oozed a little for a day, and then just healed up with no further problems apart from the tenderness, naturally.
I'm a big fan of dissolving stitches - I think my scar looks really neat and tidy, and I didn't have to get staples removed.
(I'm digressing here, sorry....getting on to incisions!!!)

I hope you can also get away with little bleeding. There are several others here who didn't bleed at all, but I gather most do.
Good luck!
