Wound bleeding.: Put pressure over it. Avoid Aspirin or antiinflamatories that prolong bleeding. May put ice paks on top. Keep wound clean with soap and water. In doubt show it to whoever sutured it. ...Read more

Mobile or not: Depends where the cuts are and hoe deep. If in a spot on thigh that is not affected much by bending your hip or knee may be able to use butterfly type bandage to bring skin together. The deeper the cuts and the more mobile the skin related to leg movement the better off you may be with stitches to insure the best healing. Tetanus up to date? ...Read more

I had a cyst removed friday, six stitches, on chest. Site is bleeding in 2 spots. Changed bandages 6 times. Is this normal?

Breast or chest?: Most acute post op bleeding should have resolved by now. Is it bright red blood or dark purple blood? If bright red blood and not stopping and saturating dressings you should hold firm pressure and call your surgeon. If dark, it may be old, postop blood that is draining. This should stop once it is all out. Either way if it has not stopped by tomorrow, see your surgeon or go to ed/urgent care. ...Read more

I had a baby 11 weeks ago. normal birth no tears or stitches. bleeding stopped at 5 weeks.. i had sex week 8 and since had bloody/ pink stringy discharge?

Reactive: Hi Debra348 Congratulations on your normal birth with no trauma. No pain? No STD exposures? Most likely the stimulation had an effect on the hormonal balance that causes contractions of the uterus, and the minor change in secretions is the result. If so, it should clear up with time. If it continues, consult a gynecological practitioner. ...Read more
