Bleeding from wound five weeks post lap

Hi ladies. I had my diagnostic lap just over five weeks ago and it healed nicely. I was back at work after a week and no problems. All of a sudden today it has started bleeding. I noticed blood on my underwear where it had been touching the incision and I gently wiped the scar with an antiseptic wipe and it was bleeding dark blood but only enough to show on the wipe, not running. It's a bit sore but not much and I feel fine. Anything to worry about? Xx

It might be best to ask your GP to take a look at it, just in case. If it's nothing to worry about then at least you'll know. xx


Definitely get the GP to check you for peace of mind xx


Thanks ladies, sorry for late reply. I put a dressing on and used antiseptic wipes for a few days and it stopped. I think maybe a small scab had formed and come off. Thankfully it is OK now :-) I'm back at hospital on the 15th for post op check up so I'll get doc to look at it xx
