bleeding post hysterectomy
mitcheltech posted:
In 2011 I had a partial hysterectomy with a bilateral ovary removal, my cervix was left because the procedure was laproscopic, I had a large amount of chocolate endometriosis, the procedure took 7hrs to complete. My obgyn moved so now I am without one and I am having vaginal bleeding. Should I be concerned? I have a new obgyn but her office doesn't open until after labor day.

It would be a good idea to get this looked into medically.

Definitely get this checked out but since you have your cervix, you can bleed Even though your ovaries were removed, if you still have some endo and/or are taking estrogen, that can stimulate any uterine tissue on the cervix causing you to bleed.
