When should I call my doctor if I had a vaginal hysterectomy and bleeding?

Now. If you had hysterectomy and is experiencing vaginal bleeding, you should be evaluated to see what is causing the problem. Most are not serious but deserves prompt attention. If you just had hysterectomy few weeks ago, small amount of bleeding may be normal.
Now. You should not have vaginal bleeding after you have healed from your hysterectomy. Your doctor would want to see you to evaluate the bleeding.

See your surgeon! You need to see your surgeon for concerns of this nature. An infection is possible but it also may also be normal. The vagina is a mucus membrane and when it is irritated by surgery there is increased mucus production just like your nose. Mixed with some clotted blood and suture material, it can have a yellow color and a bad odor even if everything is fine. Best wishes! Read more...

Possible atrophy. If you also had your ovaries out or are menopausal then it is possible that you have vaginal atrophy due to low estrogen levels. This is not the only possible cause but it is probably the most likely. The bleeding could also come from vaginal tumors or urethral abnormalities, it is possible that the bleeding is rectal rather than vaginal and you are mistaken about the source. See a doctor!
