Brief Answer:
Possible utero-bladder shunt

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting,

From your descrption you might developed an injury after your operation which lead to a shunt between your pelvic structures most probably uterus and bladder reason why there is blood in urine coming from uterus. Looking at another view you might complicated UTI which have to be determined after a doctor has done some tests. I suggest you get back to hospital soonest for immmediate intervention and management. You might require a more specific surgical intervention order than hysterectomy.

Hope this helps
