i had ovaries and tubes removed 5 days ago and tonight there was bright red blood (clot maybe size of small fingernail and some streaks ) what would cause this and what should i do - i did drive a short distance today but i am having no pain and movement is good - i am 52 - they did a fair amount of work during the surgery as my bowels had adhered to the pelvic wall and other things.

Hi cmbenoit4u and welcome to ehealth: This could be some after clotting from the surgery...However, watch out for any additional problems....Take it easy....Don't rush your healing...If you get anymore bleeding that you think may be serious, then call your physician...It is better to error on the safe side...Take care...
