Tomorrow 2 weeks post op, some bleeding, and feels like period cramps?!

Well, tomorrow marks my 2 weeks of surgery, dvTH, had all removed, left ovaries. Not much bleeding after, and actually have felt energic and good the past week!~ Today, I was not so peppy and lounged most of the day. Feel almost PMS, and my 'period' would of been due around the 1st of the month, so now is the time I'd feel icky. I have had more bloodish when I wipe, and a while ago, almost a small, like period looking piece, dark, almost small clot... ok, abit freaked out. I called the dr. and they were closed. No spotting--not that much.. just when I wipe. I find myself going to pee every 1/2 hr,. to check!!!!! Hate this! Hoping I did not overdo the past week.... I did no lifting...did go for a couple ride and short walks.... argh! Hate when I worry about the inside!!!! Outside looks great!

I hope you get onto your doctor. The period pain is likely related to your healing, and the blood likely related to your stitches dissolving, many people experience this, take care and see what your doctor says x

I had cramping at two weeks. Maybe there was some residual tissue that came loose from the vaginal cuff stitches. I am sure you are fine but is always good to check with doc. I am post op 9 weeks and still have some cramping on and off. All gets better, just watch what you do and follow the docs instructions.

Re: Tomorrow 2 weeks post op, some bleeding, and feels like period cramps?!

I have had a similar experience. Had no bleeding or spotting the first 5-6 days after surgery, but I was laying pretty low those first few days as I was severely nauseated from the anesthesia. When I starting moving around more, the spotting/very light bleeding started. I am told that it is normal. everyone recovers differently, so it can vary quite a bit from person to person. I am two weeks post-op today And feeling that crampy feeling too, with some light spotting. I think that my gradual increase in activity (still no lifting and being careful not to overdo it) combined with the fact that some of the vaginal cuff stitches may be dissolving is what is causing the spotting, and the pain, which is pretty minor, is just part of the healing.

if you're really concerned about your symptom, it might not hurt to check with your doctor. If it turns out to be nothing serious, at least you'll have some peace of mind.

Prayers and smiles are headed your way!
