Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is still possible 2 months after surgery.
Hormonal influences can cause this commonly due to the deficiency of progesterone.

Also scarring formation from the recent surgery can cause heavy bleeding.

You may expect gradual improvement over time.

However, combination birth control pill can be tried daily for few cycles.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
