Not unusual: It's not unusual to have some bleeding for 3-4 weeks after an LAVH. There are stitches at the top of the vagina that are dissolving, and there can be bleeding from those healing areas. Any heavy bleeding, though, should be reported to your surgeon.

Ask Surgeon: Generally, 4 weeks post op you should be fine, but everyone heals differently, so ask your surgeon to be safe. Best wishes.
