is this normal? Pls. Help

Hi All:

I am now one week post op. (Removal of left ovary). Everything else was taken in 1998. I was doing great up until Wed. evening and I started having rectal pain. I have to lay on a heating pad for relief. It is deep almost on my tail bone. I also had a piece of tissue removed at the vaginal cuff. I was spotting very lightly, now it is more bright red. Is this normal? Talked to doc, think she misunderstood. She told me to use colace and then prep H suppositories.

Hi Sue Have you been able to have bowel movements since your surgery a week ago? It sounds like your DR may feel the bleeding could be due to internal hemmorhoids. That's not unheard of around here !

Is the bright red bleeding rectal or vaginal, can you tell? If it's rectal, hemmorhoids might indeed be a likely suspect, but if it's vaginal... well, we've all been told to always report any new bright red bleeding post op.

I'd feel a whole lot better if your DR actually saw you rather than trying to diagnose and treat you over the phone. Any chance she could squeeze you in this week?

Hope you feel better soon.

Hi Linda:

It is vaginal bleeding. The rectal pain is I believe in the area of the coccyx and it is deep.
