Had a Davinci robotic vaginal hysterectomy, have abdominal pain near incision. Is it normal?

I had a Davinci robotic vaginal hysterectomy and BSO done 03/06/2013 for DUB. I have been recovering well. However, should I still have spotting, some pale red bleeding/ discharge and this morning I have left-sided abdominal pain near one of the incisions, especially when coughing or bending over. Should I be concerned and see my gynecologist?

Thank you for your query.
Are you sure you typed the correct date ???
It would help me a lot to know exactly when the surgery was done, there seems to be some typographical error in the date, if you would go through it again.
In the absence of that information, I would ask you to consult your gynecologist for the problems you describe.
immediately post op, it is normal to have mild spotting / blood tinged discharge and discomfort and pain near the incisions.
take care.
