Hi ladies i am 2 weeks post op and i don't know if i have done to much or if the large amount of stress we are under at the moment has caused it but i am bleeding, not as much as a period but still enough to worry. Is this normal? It is fresh red blood.

Re: Bleeding

It is very possible that you did too much. Not sure what you did but if it involved any pulling, pushing, lifting that could cause it. The amount of blood is usually the key. My doc said if you soak a pad an hour, call him. Have you had bleeding all along or is this new? If you suddenly developed bleeding, try to rest first and see if it stops. If not, call your doctor and ask about it. It is very easy to overdo it early on and cause some bleeding. Sending hugs

Re: Bleeding

You should call your doctor. Bright red blood isn't good. You may be overdoing it. I remember you posted once 5 days post op and you said you went out to eat with your family and came home and cleaned the house. If your still over doing it and not resting all the time, your body may be trying to tell you to get off your feet. I'm 2 weeks post op too and haven't left the house except for dr appointments. I have not done any ,laundry, dishes, coking, or cleaning either. You need to rest to recover properly! Please take care of yourself.

Re: Bleeding

Thank you zen bleeding calmed down but i went to see a gp and i was told all looked ok.

Cath yup i am doing to much but i have to hun if not nothing much would get done especially with 3 little ones around my feet, cooking at the moment i easy quick things much to the dismay of the kids and hubby lifts any laundry etc but i still have a lot to do as hubby had to return to work and works long hours he does try but he is tired so much at the moment that he to needs to rest as he has his the early onset althzimers and when he gets tired it gets worse bless him. The kids are back at school tomorrow so i will have more time to rest and the little one does 2 4 hour sessions at nursery which i intend to have a nap in this week.

Thankyou for replying ladies xxx

Re: Bleeding

Hello there, you might have seen my post ealier this week about bleeding. Apparantly its very normal 2 weeks post-op because this is when any haematomas you may have start to 'release' the blood AND its when stitches start to dissolve. It may have nothing to do with too much activity but try to rest imbetween your jobs so that your pelvic floor can rest.

Glad your resting. I understand you have kids and it is hard for sure. Use your energy " teaching" those school age kids how to help you. Even a kindergartener can learn how to operate the washing machine with your assistance. have him load and unload while you watch, then you can have him carry the basket and you all can fold. Little ones can fix meals if you supervise too. The kids won't die if they eat peanut butter and jelly and cereal for a few days. They also won't die if they wear the same pair of pajamas for a week and use the bathroom towel over again after several baths. Just prioritize what needs to be done and teach your kids to help. Make a game out of it. Let the normal cleaning go for now and just concentrate on the bare minimum that is necessary. Your healing and it IS NOT your job to take care of your hubby right now, even though he works long hard hours. He can fend for himself. You take care of YOU and the kiddos!! Kids love to vacuum !! too,Much love!!
