I had a total hysterectomy on August 14th of this year. I had a the one where it was vaginal and laprscopic hysto. I am still spotting and I still have a clear discharge and i still have pain and sometimes cramping. It is almost a month. I ended up going back in to see the doctor on the 8th of this month and I found out I have a bladder infection. I just finished the antibiotics but still in pain. My doctor says this is normal. I would like to know how long does these go on and and is it really normal. The spotting I have is not pink it is red. sometimes it is like an orangeish color.. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME..

God Bless
