    Hi there, is it just 'spotting', if anything more and you are having to change a pad every hour or so then you need to go to the doctor, spotting can last anything up to 6 weeks and sometimes at around the 2-3 weeks mark you may lose a little bit more in one go, this is pooled blood and nothing to worry about but again I say that if this goes on for a long time and it is a lot then seek reassurance from your GP or the consultant who did the surgery.

      Hello thank you for responding. Well I am going to be 4 weeks out Tuesday. I started having fevers that would go to highest of 100.6 started last Thursday so I went to the dr on Friday and they did a UA and said I had a bladder infection so put me on meds for that. That's feeling better but I still get the 99 fever at times. I am just thinking it's the bladder infection . But this morning it was like you said I wear thin pads and about 2:00 am I felt it heavy so I changed the pad and then about 4:40 again same thing. I was getting worried . But now it's slowed down . But it does that at certain moments it's weird. I'm like they took everything out where is the blood coming from lol

    Hi Amy,

    I had abdominal incision hysterectomy. No bleeding after op. Some people may suffer infection that may cause slight spotting.

    Have a safe op and take care

    I had abdominal hysterectomy also and no bleeding, not a drop, though I was told it was possible. Hysterectomy recovery for me was OK. I was swimming after 6 weeks.

    Hi Amy, I had laparoscopy - total hysterectomy in March this year.  I had bleeding for about 5 weeks, not heavy and just wore light pads.  If you are unsure and still not feeling well, I would go back to Doctor.  Hope you feel better soon xx
