12 days post op bleeding

Posted , 7 users are following.

I’m 12 days post -op and was told to expect some bleeding following surgery for about a week. I did not bleed . However, the last couple of days, only when I go to the washroom  (#1) and I wipe myself is there blood.  Has this happened to anyone?

    Yes. Mine lasted until follow up appointment at 6 weeks. I thought it was normal healing process. It was something called granulation I believe and she had to “touch up the tiny area” with something.  I forgot what. I eventually did stop bleeding. You may want to call your doctor as you are healing and slight bleeding is completely normal at this point in your recovery as far as I know.

    It also happened to me at about the 3rd week. I thought it would be ok to do some stretching exercises and that started it. My doctor Said not to worry unless you soak a pad. I did continue to have a little spotting up until about 6 months, so not to worry.

    Yes it’s normal, I did not bleed till day 9 and lasted about 3 days it was very light and only after using the restroom. Hope this eases your mind :-)

    I just noticed my comment said 6 months. No,no, that would be scarey! I meant to type 6 weeks.
