Hysterectomy done. Found blood in rectum. Pap smear fine. Have swollen leg. Are they related?

I am having some spotting and I had a hysterectomy 7 years ago. I had my annual about 6 months ago. They found some blood in my rectum , and I had an colonosopy done and everything was fine. The pap smear also was fine. My left leg is swollen in the calf area. It is twice the size of my other leg and has been for about 6 years. It recently has started bothering me can this be connected?

Hello madam, well your history is incomplete. did not mention about your age, why you have undergone hysterectomy and were you taking any hormonal supplements following hysterectomy?......oestrogen supplements taken for a long period of time may cause side effects like thrombosis....i would suggest you to consult your doctor, as a detail history and also examination of the leg is required before coming to a conclusion. .....hope i was helpful to you. ....
