Can be: IF it is light and no fever or cramps likely still healing. I would expect this to stop though. If next week rolls around and still persistent call your provider.

Brown: color is usually indicative of OLD blood...so if it's not bright red and very light it may in fact still be completely normal post cryosurgery...a simple phone call to your GYN may relieve your mind...why not?? Hope this helps! Dr Z
