post hysterectomy staining
bklyn316 posted:
It's been almost six year since my Hysterectomy and I have 'staining'. It's not like menstrual staining, much thinner and a burnt orange red color, after urinating and almost monthly. Any pertinent thoughts on what this might be? I have mentioned it to my Gym but he doesn't think it's anything to worry about.
georgiagail responded:
Please explain why type of hysterectomy you had. Partial? Was the cervix removed during this surgery?

bklyn316 replied to georgiagail's response:
Total Hysterectomy, everything gone.
georgiagail replied to bklyn316's response:
One question that might be asked is whether this represents a vaginal issue or (because it occurs after urination) has more to do with the bladder/kidneys. For example, urinating blood through the kidneys.
