    I am sure that it is quite normal. I was lucky in that I had very little bleeding which stopped after a week or so just like a very light period but don't really have periods now as on hrt. If you are worried speak to a nurse on the ward that you were discharged from. Still very early days for you

    I never had any bleeding as had a hysterectomy 10 years ago but I'm 10 weeks down the line and my back is sometimes still very painful. could last up to 6 months possibly.  I see consultant end of this month anyway.  It's normal.  Remember to rest

    It is normal but if it becomes particularly heavy or smells then you need to see your GP

      Hello Fozzybear. Sometimes you get the bloated feeling if your surgeon has had to pump some air into the area whilst he's doing the repair. It's so different bits and pieces are easily visible other than that it could be because you're bowel has slowed down a bit due to being handled.

      You can buy Buscopan over the counter from the pharmacy and that will help or try windeze.
