Hi all. I had my surgery 4 months ago and a week later I got my period, and I’ve had it ever since. So nearly 4 months of bleeding. I’ve been to the Dr today and been referred to gynocology but was wondering if anyone has experienced similar?

Same It's been about 70 days for me but it didn't start right after surgery. Just a couple months ago.

Good luck! :D

Mine started the day after surgery and it was on and off for what felt like forever. My GYN said it was coming from the dumping of estrogen stored in my fat cells and that it should start to taper out soon. I’m 7 months out and didn’t have a period prior due to my IUD. It Is getting better but the first couple of months were pretty awful with how random and long it was.

You girls make me happy I'm years past "the CHANGE". But I got the mood swings, the "weepies", the "What did I do and why at my age (then 72) did I ask for this to happen?" & the bottom line " This was Elective surgery and I went and did THIS?", for a while I was a Storming Norma, eventually this flood of Fat containing Hormones melted and dissipated but TOMKITTEN ( my Son) said " Mama if I EVER get married remind me NOT to,pick a Menopausal woman with Teenaged Daughters- I couldn't live with another flood of Fem- min- nine Hormones!" Told him for the right gal He might do it but he just shook his head and walked into the Next Room. Its been a year yesterday and things stay pretty smooth at Chez FRUSTR8 but for a while he wasn't sure whether to speak or risk being murdered where he stood! Didn't want to send me to the "Gyno" but wasn't sure a psychiatrist and a Rubber Room weren't Needed. So I'll testify it rocks you on your ear or rear before everything settles down. And NOW when I am 1/2 the size I started, 180 instead of 365+, feeling so much healthier, in sizes I wore when I graduated High School 56 years ago, getting second looks and even a few Wolf Whistles from guys ( yeah should be offended but it's thrilling to be an object for a second or 2) Frustr8 is Not Sorry for her RNY, did for me what ALL THOSE DIETS never did and I have renewed life and a FUTURE when I was 7/8ths of the way to die sadly obese. And my new motto will always be
THE REST OF MY LIFE WILL BE THE BEST OF MY LIFE- now and forever more!👵=😝👍🌈

I believe it's menopause. I bleed for a whole year, it was awful. And then finally after 53 yrs old one day it just stopped. Happiest day ever

You may want to make sure you are taking Iron. I was anemic when I menstruate. I have had a hysterectomy so I dont have to worry about that. Take care of yourself!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
