I am 40 years ago and had a partial hysterectomy, took out uterus and cervix, left the ovaries, on October 17th and just started bleeding yesterday like a light period. I have pain through the abdomen and at the ovaries. The pain is comes and goes. I just want to know if the bleeding is normal or not.

Dear Ash072,
When you take out the cervix, you put a lot of stitches at the top of the vagina, to sew it up. It is possible that you had a small collection of blood that accumulated at the top of the vagina, which is now coming out. I would let your gynecologist know; as long as the bleeding is light, and you don't have a fever, you probably won't need any significant interventions, but I would let the doc who did the surgery know about it.
Hope you get better soon,
Mary Jane
