Discharge question

Posted , 5 users are following.

I had posterier vaginal repair (rectocele) 6 weeks ago and have been healing well with no issues, and minor pain and minor discomfort. I am at the danger point now where I am getting itchy feet inasmuch as I want to do more than I know is wise, this is made worse by the fact that we are selling our house and moving into our motorhome to go travelling Europe for a year of two! My question is this, how long does the discharge usually last? I don't have a lot, but enough that I need to wear panty liners and it is annoying. My post op check up is booked for 4 weeks time.

    Hi. I suffered a lot of discharge. I think it's all the healing taken place. I think mine had gone by about 7/8wks. I'm now 11 wks and it hasn't returned. That's the stage I hated most. Hope it clears soon for you.

    Good luck with you travelling sounds like an amazing opportunity.

    Hi Pearl,

    My discharge lasted about 5 weeks then when I overdone things had a little more , but I think it does not normally go beyond 7 weeks. Have heard some women having heavier bleeds where their has been older blood from op coming away once more mobile and stitches disolving/ coming away.

    Hope you enjoy your touring ; wish I was retired and able to do the same, sounds great fun!

    Hi, I'm on 11 weeks today and until this week was still getting discharge. I went to my GP as thought I had thrush, which seems I did, treating this at the moment and discharge nearly stopped, I think I have probably had it for a few weeks and thought it was just recovery time.
