Question, will I need pantiliners in the future after surgery?

We are an eco-friendly family. I use cloth diapers for my 2 year old (I did for my older children, too, I have 4 children) and recently bought a bunch of cloth pantiliners that are still brand new. I'm trying to decide if I should just sell these or if I will have a use for them.

I'm having an abdominal hysterectomy on 4/13 (not sure if ovaries are staying in yet but leaning towards leaving them in there & just having the uterus out, I need to research this further). Will I have use for pantiliners in the future on a regular basis? I know sometimes now there is normal discharge between periods that sometimes I prefer to use a liner for, will that continue after?

Thank you

Re: Question, will I need pantiliners in the future after surgery?

I would hang on to them. I had post op spotting for a few days but some sisters may spot four weeks or more. I still use liners since there are stitches in my vaginal cuff that will start dissolving around 30 days post op. Today my doctor told me the dissolving stiches may cause some spotting. Best wishes to you for your upcoming surgery!

You should count on needing them sometime in the first 6 weeks. I had TAH on 3/6. I came home without any discharge and celebrated about that, and then on day 10 it started. Its very light, varies in weird colors from pinkish brown, to orangish, to yellow. I was really disappointed, I thought I escaped it! But it means I am healing so I guess I can deal.

I'm four weeks out and just stopped using them. I am still hanging onto some liners for awhile though because things could still change. Also glad I had a larger pad in my purse because at 2-1/2 weeks, I had actual bleeding for a day which came on without any notice.

Once I am completely healed, I'll get rid of the rest.

I would hang onto them. I spotted for about 7 weeks after, so I used pads, since I wasn't allowed to use tampons.

I had no discharge until day six and then for I had some for about 2 weeks after. Because I was not able to wrap my head around no more bleeding, I wore a mini pad for a week or so longer than I really needed to. I've had no need for anything since. My old ucky period panties have been trashed and my new panties remain pristine. It's glorious : )

I swear, my first real shopping trip is going to be to Victorias Secret to get me some sexy, pristine, lacy, rediculously sexy panties and matching bras.

Re: Question, will I need pantiliners in the future after surgery?

I was just about to get rid of mine because I haven't had any spotting postop since the 3rd day after surgery.

BUT THEN...

I remembered SEX. I don't know about you, the the post coital drainage drives me bonkers, and I plan to keep them for that. I hate the drippy wet feeling after the deed, so I intend to keep panty liners. I'll also keep some pads on hand for guests (as I just recently had a guest for an overnight who was not prepared for an unexpected period).
