Had hysterectomy, nauseous, vomit, vaginal bleeding, abdomen pain. Why is this happening?

Hi I had a total hysterectomy 13 years ago and about 3am this morning I was nauseous and actually vomitted alittle and then I noticed I had vaginal bleeding I had not actually used the potty. I did not urinate or have a bowel movement . It was quite a bit of blood, it was bright red and once I wiped thoroughly it was gone and I havent bleed since. But I have lower abdominal pain on the right side with pressure and a fulliness feeling. also I have cramping in my whole stomach area and gas. I am prone to kidney stones and actually had 8 stones removed by surgery within the last 12 months. Why am I bleeding?

Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms can be caused by partial bowels obstruction due to adhesions. Please note that every abdominal surgery causes adhesions creation. Adhesions can narrow intestines and give an obstruction which gives abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting.
If your hysterectomy were done because of cancer and radiotherapy were performed, this could also give bowels obstruction due to bowels radiation. Vaginal bleeding can be also because of radiation. Cancer in vaginal area is also possible.

I suggest you to visit your doctor. Abdominal X-ray, transvaginal ultrasound, blood work should be done at first. Abdominal CT with oral contrast should be also considered.

Hope this will help.
