I am almost 4 weeks post op LAVH and late this afternoon when I was brushing my teeth I had a sudden gush of bleeding, bright red blood. I have had hardly any bleeding since my surgery, pinkish discharge at the most. I called my dr as soon as this happened. The nurse said to lay down for an hour and if the bleeding stops to call in the morning to be seen to be checked out, if it doesn't stop go to the ER. Well as long as I am laying down I really don't bleed. I have some cramping really low in my belly, probably in the area of my cervical cuff and I am also feeling it in my back. I figured it was ok to just wait until tomorrow if I stay laying down but then I went to the bathroom and passed a few clots, about 1-2 inches in size. I can feel some pressure down low also, reminds me of my really bad periods, I would have the same kind of pressure right before I passed some pretty large clots. I have read a lot of posts on here about bleeding and clots, some say it can be normal around this time of my recovery and then some say it is not. I don't know if I should go to the ER or wait until tomorrow to see my dr? I think what scares me is that when I had a C-section I had a lot of blood loss and had to have several transfusions so I am kind of scared to go to sleep? But I also don't want to overreact and sit forever waiting in the ER for it to be nothing, plus making my husband take me when he has to work tomorrow. Does anyone have any suggestions?
