hi - Im 12 days post op have had some problems - feeling very unwell during recovery - nausea, extreme weakness- tired and headaches but recently over past couple of days i had a foul discharge (horrible) which i could feel seeping out of vagina and then developing itching and stinging when passing water and now thats progressed to passing blood in my urine - has anyone experienced anything similar in post op hysterectomy?

any advice would be very appreciated xx

    Hi Lara. Have you told your doctor? UTIs are very common after surgery when you've had a catheter. I was given a 7 day course of antibiotics and it cleared. However, I also had significant slightly discoloured leakage which I was told was drainage from the surgical procedure. It lasted a good week and I went through what seemed like a landfill of adult diapers. If it's painful to urinate, then you probably have an infection and should get antibiotics. Check with your doctor immediately.
