Bleeding after intercourse and right side pain.  Partial laproscopic  hysterectomy 9 years ago.  Belly button pain as well.

3 problems: 1. Bleeding after intercourse in some one who has had a hysterectomy is not common.

Right sided pain if severe and/or associated with nausea, fever or vomiting could indicate appendicitis and prompt evaluation is needed. 3.

Please help? My belly button looks weird after laparoscopy?

How long after?: Some scarring after any incision is normal. The umbilical incision commonly used with laparoscopy is no exception. The change in appearance could be anything from the scarring process to a hernia. Have the surgeon who did the procedure look at it. It may just need a little more time, or may need something done to correct a bigger problem. ...Read more
