Post op bleeding

Ok, so I had a DaVinci assisted hysterectomy 3 weeks and 3 days ago. I am having some light pink bleeding and it's minimal. I notice it generally when I have been up and around for a while. The doc said I shouldn't be concerned unless it becomes like a period. However, I still am concerned because I hope it's not the start of something major. Has anyone else experienced post op bleeding or discharge? Thanks Ladies!

Re: Post op bleeding

I also had the da Vinci operation on the 8th. Today I noticed some discharge; not so much the bleeding. I read somewhere that with vaginal sutures, they eventually dissolve and some may come out through the vagina, but I didn't have any vaginal sutures. Lots of moving around over Christmas weekend, so wondering if that did it. I 'm feeling really sore where the tummy incisions are, more so on the right one. So want to know what is going on inside!

Re: Post op bleeding

Post-op bleeding is very common. Many ladies have spotting for 6 weeks or more. I had pink spotting for 10 days or so... I can't remember exactly but it was more pink than red. Some ladies have no spotting or bleeding at all. The range of normal is huge after this surgery. However, if you start bleeding bright red blood to the point you are filling one pad in one hour, it is time to head to the ER to find out what is causing the bleeding. I hope that your bleeding stops soon.
