Had my hysterectomy performed laparascopically on Dec 2nd, retaining ovaries.
Have had a brown/dark red discharge since the end of week 2, which I assumed was internal stitches dissolving. Has been present for 6 days as of today,
I was struggling to pass a bowel movement and strained a little. There was a strange sound and then bright pink blood when I wiped. It wasn't a lot but I remember being warned to watch out for pink blood.
Does anyone know whether I should be seeking help now or only if it becomes heavier?
I'm struggling to get help from the hospital. No discharge letter and struggling to get anyone to arrange my follow up appointment - surgeon's secretary says it's the wards job, the ward says its down to the secretary...
Had my hysterectomy because the surgeon said he was 99.9% certain following diagnostic lap that my main problem was adenomyosis, but spoke to my GP and asked if they'd had pathology results, apparently no adeno present,
Confused and worried.
Any advice on bleeding would be great!
