The hysterectomy stump being raw/delicate for few post operative weeks may give rise to slight bleeding, the bleeding afterwords may be instigeted by weight lifting( which is not good ). But this should not continue for more than 3 months. If it is so, visit your Gynecologist,get internally checked for healing of the hysterectomy wound/ infection at the sight.
The pain off & on over ovarian area ,is normal to happen in first year after the procedure. later on it may be occasionally seen due to adhe'sions/strech,stress,but excessive pain indicates a consultation of doctor/sonographic assessment of operation site.
