    Hello Fozzybear. You're absolutely right the blue thread is a stitch or part of one and bleeding is quite normal. However if the bleeding is very heavy and has an offensive odour then you would need to speak to your GP. I wish hospital staff would give all this information on discharge, it would prevent so much anxiety, not just for you put for lots of other ladies as well. Hope you're getting lots of rest.

      I'm currently working on a document on post op care following pelvic floor surgery which we hope will be rolled out across the health trusts in England and Wales. It was this forum that made me realise just how little information is given to ladies on discharge from hospital. In fact I was horrified to be honest because no lady was discharged from my ward without being informed of what to expect and the does and don'ts. I'm pleased this forum exists

      It's consistency to across all staff ! I was told different things from 3 different nurses before discharge !! Thank goodness for this forum X

      There was no inconsistency on my ward. Every nurse had it drummed into them on the 1st day what had to be said. How can we expect surgery to be successful if the incorrect information is given? We may as well say nothing at all!
