My mother is 60 yrs old and she's had a total hysterectomy several years ago. 5 years ago she had vaginal bleeding for 9 days like a period! She also experiences(or feels like it)light menstrual cramping!Now its happened again today..she's bleeding..what could possibly cause this? I recommend that she get a transvaginal sonogram.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your mother needs a repeat examination done by a gynecologist along with hormonal level tests and ultrasound scan to look for the source of bleeding and get it controlled.
