Had surgery for bilateral chronic subdural hematomas. Spots of blood when blowing nose. Matter of concern?

Following surgery on 22nd Oct 2012 for bilateral chronic subdural haematomas I am now having slight spots of old blood when I blow my nose , in last 24 hours this has turned to fresh blood, not a lot but definately there. I am due to have surgery for removal of the original VP shunt fitted in February 2012 (an active hydracephalous was diagnosed following MRI ) for an 8 setting shunt. Are these spots of blood anything to be concerned about? My next surgery is planned for either Feburary or April depending how my general health is. I am a 60 year old male. Thank you. Philip W. Cork

hello..., slight amount of spotting of blood could be locally from nose due to vigorous blowing...if the amount of bleeding is more then you may have to concern..i would also suggest you to check your blood pressure if its higher than 120/80 then u might need to consult a ent specialist..
