Have vaginal bleeding, clotting. Have PCOS. Had a Laparoscopy. Is this abnormal?

Hi! Short medical history:
I have pcos and have had 3 surgerys since 2002 which was my first ovarian cyst to cause complications. I've had an ovary and tube removed due to cyst growth. A laparoscopic removal of cyst a few years later and recently a lap. Surgery for endo and dermoid cyst removal. My most recent was done 3\20\13 since then I've had some vaginal bleeding which only reqires a pnaty liner but this is the first surgery where I have ben experiencing bleeding and clots for so long after surgery. It is a mix of red and brown in color. Could this be considered abnormal or b signs of something else?

Thanks for the query.

Prolonged bleeding after surgery is somewhat uncommon, so better to get evaluated to find out the cause.
Once consult gynecologist, get examined and undergo ultrasound to observe the endometrial pattern, condition of the remaining ovary.
And with your doctor's advice go for hormonal profile including estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH and thyroid profile.
With this workup possibly the cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
