Myomectomy incision

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi,

I had a myomectomy 3 weeks ago, it was healing great but the past couple if days, I've been getting sharp pain out of the blue , the incision is bleeding & & it smells! I'm so nervous! Is this normal?

Thank you for reading my post!

    Have you showered since your surgery? if it's smelling after you've showered, it's sign of infection. I'd advice you go see your surgeon right away, it's not suppose to bleed

    Hey Samie72,

    It sounds like you might have an infection around the incision. Have you experienced any other symptoms such as high temperature or nausea? Your incision shouldn't be smelling or bleeding. I would assume that you have washed and cleaned around the area since your surgery three weeks ago? Please go and see your GP as soon as possible. All the best!
