I'm 2 years post op (total hysterectomy, oopherectomy, oementum removal) and generally feel well with mobility, able to exercise, do yoga, dig the garden, etc. However, I've found that if I do anything that uses the muscles in the abdomen a lot I get a little blood and slight ache a few hours later. The blood is just a bit when I go to the toilet and appears to be from the vagina. The ache feels like it's at the top of the vagina. The blood is barely worth wearing a panty pad for, but when it happens I do as a precaution more than anything.
The first time it happened was about 3-4 months post surgery and was not too startling given the timing. I mentioned it to my surgeon and she said it wasn't cancer related, rather just bits of tissue still healing.
However, it has happened a few times in the last two years, each time being when I've done something that uses my core muscles a lot, e.g. standing for a long time, doing core muscle exercises. I did a few core muscle exercises yesterday and this morning got a little blood when I went to the toilet. I've now got the little ache.
I don't think it's anything to worry about given my conversation with my surgeon the first time it happened. But I was rather hoping that if I did core muscle exercises then it would get gradually better. Instead I seem to get nowhere with the exercises as this keeps happening and then I decide I need to rest the core until it heals.
Has anyone else had anything similar?
