A spotting is not uncommon in second or third post operative week after hysterectomy due to vaginal sutures getting absorbed.

But a frank bleeding would warrant an exam by your surgeon or at emergency room.

You may need an ultrasound for the evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
