Bleeding after surgery

Posted by

My husband had a small inconclusive on biopsy tumor removed in March. Had to have another far larger tumor removed 10 weeks later. He is 4 weeks into his recovery but has had some bleeding today & yesterday. Has anyone had similar experiences that turned out not to be a reoccurance? Any experiences welcomed we are both feeling very anxious

Hello Lmtml

It's not unusual to experience further bleeding later after you expect the bladder wound to have healed. It's likely to be the scab tissue coming away causing further bleeding.

However, if you are concerned then I recommend that you contact your nurse specialist or the ward where he had the procedure. Meanwhile, he should continue to drink pleny of fluids to keep his bladder flushed out.

Good luck!
