Laparoscopy with diathermy to endo


Hi I recently (last Tuesday) had a hysteria copy and laparoscopy with dye test plus diathermy to widespread stage 2 endo with pelvic washout and cervical cautery.

Started having vaginal bleeding today, not heavy, is this normal?

I initially had some bleeding (minor) for the first day and a half and felt ok first 2 days post op then the tiredness hit. And rested for 2 days. Went back to work today but had cramps overnight and then started bleeding again this morning. I'm still really bloating but pain is minimal.

Is this normal?

Hey, I'm guessing you mean hysteroscopy?! Sounds about right.

I didn't have cervical cautery, but did have cervical chemical treatment (chemical burning) to remove cervical ectropion - it's after effects are the same though - that caused bleeding and a bit of cramping the next day.

I had they hysteroscopy with my diagnostic lap and removal of endo - I did have some bleeding the next few days from the hysteroscopy. I then had bleeding again about a week later - kind of like a period but a lot shorter and lighter - I left it a few weeks and kept track of my cycles - they've changed to my period being on that day a month later rather than two weeks later (as predicted). When I had a chat at my follow up with my specialist (2 weeks after lap and a week after random bleed) he did say sometimes the body goes into shock from the op and all the poking around, so it can alter cycles.

Hope that helps xx

Thank you and yes meant hysteroscopy damn auto correct. 8 days post op and my bloat finally seems to be going down. Still bleeding but not like a period, it's brown but watery. I'll give it til Friday then maybe get in touch with the consultant to check all ok.
