Hi, thanks for your question.

Bleeding after a hysterectomy is usually normal if it occurs within the six-week recovery period, reduces in quantity as the days go by, and if it appears pinkish in color. After the six-week period( which you have gone past) bright red blood is indicative of something else inclusing; reopened wound, untied blood vessel, vaginal injury, or vaginal infection.

I would advice you revist your gynaecologist to review the operation site for proper evaluation.
