Discharging pinkish red fluid after bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy. Is this normal?

I had a bilateral salpingo- oophorectomy on 5/29, had a period 2 days later ( gynecologist said this was normal and would occur prior to surgery) and this morning I have a light period. My doctor is not concerned (spoke with her this morning and she thought it might be residual blood because of its brown color) but I thought that once your ovaries are gone, a woman doesn t menstruate. Now the color is looking like a pinkish red. Should I be concerned or is this normal?

Hello ma'am and welcome.

You are not menstruating, this is most probably residual blood as your doctor suspected or a possible bleed. This could also be a completely normal process, but it is better to get it looked at.

I would recommend a bimanual examination, speculum examination and an ultrasound investigation to be conducted just to make sure all is well. But may be in a few days time. Let us wait to see if things normalize.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
