Bleeding, Swelling And Pain After Hysterectomy.

I had a total abdominal hysterectomy on february 16'th,2004. I woke up to a very swollen and bruised stomache. I am on week 3 post op and have begun to bleed bright red blood, as opposed to the brown discharge I was having before. Not alot, but any fresh blood kind of has me worried. I also have had alot of pain abdominally and much swelling as well. My stomache is swollen so much that it hangs over my incision, making for a bad healing environment as far as the incision goes. Is the bright red bleeding anything to worry about or is it something that will pass? I just thought that at almost 4 weeks post op things would be going better by now. Any advice or knowledge is appreciated. Question

Hi
I am 42 and had a hysterectomy last november, I was bleeding right after my surjury, I was bleeding out and had to have additional surjury... I have several forums here please feel free to read them.. The swelling I your stomach and bleeding is not normal. Please seek another dr's medical advice.. Good luck and keep in touch! :d

I had a total hysterectomy at 42 & despite being way overweight (& I did bleed for about 7-10 days) I had no other real trouble other than normal healing pain/discomfort.

See another dr or if you still rtust the one who did the op demand attention & exploratory surgery & document everything that has happened & that has been done & what you ask for & are told & what is & is not done etc. Threaten legal action. That often gets them to act faster!!
