Hi i am into my 3rd week post op of hysterectomy and i woke up this morning for the toilet when i found my pants where wet through at the front when lookin down i relised it was my wound.There was lots of brownish stuff coming out of this really small gap in the wound.So i went to the hospital and the nurse cleaned it and put some dressing on it and then gave me some anti bioitic and told me to come back on Tuesday to have it looked at again.As this ever happened to anyone else please.

    H, Julie, No, this didn't happen to me, but you did exactly the right thing: you noticed there might be an issue (!), you went to the hospital, and an expert put it right. It sounds as if the incision wasn't quite closed and maybe a tiny infection set up which caused the wound to weep. Take it easy, go back to no lifting, and pat yourself on the back for doing the right thing.
