I had a total hysterectomy approx. 6 months ago. Everything is gone, ovaries, tubes, cervix and uterus. I have been having occasional lower abdominal pain and some slight bleeding. Why is this?

Hi! Any bleeding or spotting which occurs more the six to eight weeks post operatively is not considered normal. There may be issues regarding how your incisions are healing. Any vaginal bleeding can signal a serious problem, especially if the surgery was performed to remove a malignancy. Women who have undergone hysterectomy for cancer should have regular check ups and should report any bleeding or spotting immediately. Talk to your doctor.

Just got back from the Dr. She said it was granulation tissue, so she cauterized it with silver nitrate. She said it might sting a little but it wasn't bad at all.
Thanks and have a great day!

Hi! I'm glad that you've found the cause. I read that on most occasions, the appearance of granulation tissue is a good sign as it indicates that the body is trying to overcome the injury and is thus, healing. I hope that abdominal pain and bleeding are gone by now. :-)

I had a total hysterectomy 5months ago and I'm spotting, light in color but very present. Should I be concerned ? I'm 50 yrs old I had problems with cysts and extra long periods. I'm just bleeding when I drain my bladder and wide, hope that's not too much info. Thanks
