Spotting post-op, wk 3...

Hello princesses! Today is 3 wks post-op for me. I had a TAH on the 27th of Feb. I have been doing really well. I have one concern...I am spotting a little. I had no bleeding during wk 1. It started wk 2 and has not stopped. Staples are removed and my incision has healed but know the inside has a ways to go. Is the spotting normal? It had a slight smell which made me think of a period. I also feel as if there is a knot in my lower abdomin and it is really sensitive and sore. Any advice would be great!!!

Mine started in week 2 also, and is off and on, but there's always more after I've overdone it. It's pinkish, though, not red. I'd call the doctor if it's red, just to be safe.

Hi there!

I started vag. bleeding on post-op day 12.

It freaked me out a little and I posted a question here yesterday. I got several great responses. If you search under Melissa Ann the post is titled bleeding post op day 12. You can read my responses.

I am back to my pj's and the couch today. I read some scary posts. I haven't had time for this one surgery. I certainly don't have time for another one!

Take care and take it easy!

Spotting post-op, wk 3...

Thank you for posting this. I too am 3 wk post op and had very slight bleeding a few days of wk 1, then nothing until end of last week. It was very minimal until tonight. I'm having a little pain in my lower right abdomen which has been building over past two days. At first I thought maybe I've just done to much activity, but then tonight I have a bit of bleeding, most I've had so far and it's pinkish. More fresh looking than previously. The doctor did tell me that I could expect mini periods because he did leave my cervix but removed ovaries and uterus. Is it possible that's what this is or have I done something else?

I am 4 weeks post op from DvH. I have been spotting off and on since my surgery. If I overdo or stay on my feet too long, it gets redder and more. It's really just when I wipe and not usually on my panty liner. I actually called my Dr.'s Nurse Practitioner today and she said it is normal to spot for 6 weeks and some for longer. Hope this helps.

Yes, thank you. Puts my mind at ease a little more.
