Question about HysterectomyI had a hysterotomy at 15 weeks plus. I then had an intra-uterine blood clot for about 7 weeks. Since the blood clot has gone, I have been bleeding pretty much non stop for about a couple of months. Is that normal?
Some irregular bleeding is not uncommon following the operation. However as it has persisted for more than 4 weeks I would recommend a scan to ensure that the endometrial cavity is normal. If the scan is normal then the bleeding maybe hormonal in origin.
