I ve had a brownish discharge, Should I be concerned ?

I am a 60 year old woman who had a total hysterectomy @ 40 (infarcted fibroid). I ve been on hormone replacement since but stopped taking it this year, 3 months now. For the past 6+ months I ve had a brownish discharge, sometimes with an orange tint. Should I be concerned ? I have no pain.

welcome to healthcaremagic
Hysterectomyis the surgical procedure for the partial or total removal of the uterus.
After going through the surgical procedure, you will experience brown discharge after hysterectomy. Following are other visible but normal effects of hysterectomy include:
light and dark brown discharge after hysterectomy
You will no longer have your monthly period.
Light discharge
Dark brown discharge that can be experienced for 4 to 6 weeks
Redness, itching, and swelling along the incisions
i suggest you home remedies if you get symptoms
Avoid douching or applying anything on your vagina to avoid the risk of infection. Your brown discharge will be replaced with other color if you get infected.
Drink plenty of water to gradually wash the blood and other impurities from your system.
Apply a mild lotion around the incision to relive itching.
