Bleeding!

Hi~
This morning after urinating I discovered that the toilet bowl was full of bright red blood and when I wiped I saw a huge clot...sorry if tmi!
I'm a nervous wreck...Dr said to worry if I start bleeding like a period or if I pass another clot.
Of course I keep checking my pad and seeing more blood....I don't want to call for every little thing so I was wondering if anyone has any advice!
Thanks

Re: Bleeding!

Hi Laura,
I had a lot of bleeding about 10 days post op - huge clots too. I freaked and went back to the hospital. They examined me and said that it was ok - basically sometimes they don't get everything during the operation, or there can be bleeding when the internal stitches are coming out. The doctor told me to come back if I had a fever, as this could indicate an infection, or if the bleeding continued to be heavy - in fact it stopped later that day. I guess I would give you the same advice!
All the best,
Christina

Re: Bleeding!

I had a huge clot and a large gush of blood about 2 weeks post op (of course I was at a restaurant and people saw it!). I called and doctor told me that it is "normal". I can't believe that they didn't give me a warning or something that it could happen. I thought I needed to go to the ER!

Rest and feel better.

Re: Bleeding!

I agree! You'd think we'd be warned that something like this could happen!!
It happened again...I so freaked out but I decided not to call the Dr again and just wait and see what else happens.
So far, nothing. Except for the fact that I feel nauseous and totally wiped out, I think caused from my nerves
Thank you ladies!!
I think I'd really be a basket case without my "sisters"!

OMG! You've scared me I'm at day 18, posted yesterday here about a little bit of bleeding, just a spot. And, I'm seeing a bit of that discharge tinged red again today. Definitely not enough to be alarmed, but... NO ONE told me that I might end up bleeding, most certainly not the way you describe it! And we've had the same surgery? I had da Vinci, uterus, ovaries and cervix gone, with cuff. So, what happened to you is "normal"?!

Don't be scared. The doctor told me that I could have spotting for up to 6 weeks as things heal inside. She only said to call if I filled a pad an hour - which is a lot to me! Since she took my cervix and all I have is a vaginal cuff I have no clue where all the blood even was at or where it came from. I guess I pictured it all sewn up inside and nothing could really get "out" of there.

When I called, the doctor said it was most likely that I was swollen, had the blood clot, and all the blood was behind that, the swelling came down and out it came. I didn't bleed at all after my surgery. Then it just all let go at once, and since that happened I have only had some spotting. I did call my doctor just to be sure, and it really freaked me out.

There have been a few other hystersisters who have had this happen, that is the only reason I didn't run to the ER. I made my husband bring me home from the restaurant, I cleaned myself up, then called the doctor. The doctor didn't even have me come in to see her since the bleeding stopped.

Re: Bleeding!

Thank you! I woke up this morning 2 1/2 weeks postop, to find bright red blood when I went to the restroom. I was worried to say the least, and of course my Doctor said nothing about this happening at all!! Your posts were so reassuring!

Re: Bleeding!

I had one big gush of heavy-ish bleeding on postop day 20. I freaked out too, it was surprising and not at all painful. It was followed by a week of spotting that only happened at night.

I found this website: http://www.wdxcyber.com/nbleed13.htm (this page is what i wish the hospital had sent me home with as a care sheet)

It not only eased my mind but also, I realized that after that gush of blood I no longer had bladder pressure. I'm assuming it was a pocket that needed to be released. Much of my bladder issues have been resolved since actually. I'm at week 4.5 and haven't had any further spotting... so far
