Menopause

Unusual bleeding after hysteroscopy

03/04/2009

Question:

I recently had a hysteroscopy and D and C because I was experiencing post menopausal bleeding. My age is 57 and 9 and a half years ago I had a lupectomy for cancer. So my concern was for the diagnosis of the uterus. I haven`t had a period in 9 years, now I`m bleeding . I called my doctor and she said I might have this bleeding for a couple of weeks. The procedure was done on Feb 6 and I have been experiencing bleeding for about 10 days, is this unusal?

Answer:

This question is best answered by your own physician. The answer depends on your history, your examination, and what he/she found at the time of your surgery. I would suggest that you call his/her office again and express your concerns.
