Hello, I am new here but I have a question I would like to ask.
My mom had a hysterectomy - the uterus, cervix, a small portion of the vagina, the tubes and ovaries were removed. The cancer was diagnosed as Stage 2 Endometrial cancer. The pelvic wash was clear and the lymph nodes were negative for cancer. Due to her age 79 and her medical history which includes Severe Aortic valve stenosis, osteoptosis she was advised not to take radiation treatment as her Dr. felt that she would not do well with it. Her surgery was done on May 8th. She is 7 weeks post op. Today she had a discharge which appear to be blood tinged. Is this normal? Does anyone know what the blood tinged discharge would be related to Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Her next doctor's appoointment is not until August.
