I had the LLETZ procedure and a fractional D&C done on April 26th. I had some very light bleeding (no pain) that day and through the night, then it stopped. I didn't have any more bleeding or even any spotting until this past Tuesday (11 days after surgery). I've now had bright red bleeding for 4 days straight. It's not enough to soak a pad, even after several hours, and I haven't seen any clots or anything. Still no pain. Also, I'm pretty sure it's not my period as my last period stopped just 2 days before my surgery. So here are my questions:
1. Is it normal for there to be such a long delay before the bleeding starts?
2. My allergies developed into bronchitis Monday so I've been coughing quite a bit as well, could that be related to the onset of the bleeding?
3. I have a follow-up appointment scheduled with my gyno on Monday and I wasn't told what to expect at that appointment. Will it include a pelvic exam and, if so, will they still be able to do the exam if I'm still bleeding?
If anyone could help, It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
