I had an elective bilateral salpingectomy on 10/9. I was told I would have light bleeding for a couple days. I've been spotting since after surgery (9 days) but today 10/17 it has got a little heavier. I should add that I haven't had a period in almost 2yrs from the depo shot and I had the depo shot 5 days before surgery. So I know it's not a period. Is bleeding this long normal? And it getting heavier, is that normal? Should I be concerned?

I had a complete hysterectomy with bilateral salpingectomy on 12/10/2013. My diagnosis was severe endometriosis, fribroid tumors, adenomyosis, and uterine polyps. Also during the surgery, a Gastrointestinal Surgeon was brought in to detach my uterus and cervix from my colon and rectum. Everything was done my the davinci robot (thank goodness). I ve been having some light bleeding and cramping lately. Should I be concerned?

I had a bilateral oophorectomy and salpingectomy seven days ago ( I have BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations) as a preventative measure. I feel quite well ( I felt good symptoms...) but I have had to wear a light pad as I seem to have vaginal bleeding ( not heavy just annoying !). Do I need to contact my Dr. ?. I am not having difficulty with bowel or bladder, no back pain, etc. Thank you

Hello, I had a bilateral salpingectomy by exploratory laprasectomy (spelling??) two weeks ago due to an allergic reaction to the essure tubal implant. Last week, we visited my brothers home who has a rough driveway that was very painful for me once we finally got to his home. I was off medication but since that visit, I m experiencing sharp, burning pain predominantly on the left side of the incision. I still have some on right. Car rides intensify the pain as does wearing underwear. Vicodon and ibuprofen help at home but are no match for being in the car. Is this typical? What are some concerns that I should be aware of?
