The worst menstruation of my life



Recommended Posts

I have an IUD so I do not often get bleeds. I have had some minor spottings after my surgery, but now I am full on thick bleeding. For the first time in 2 + years. And I hate it. This is by far the worst pain after surgery I felt. My uterus feels like it is ripping apart. All my stomach is tender. I can barely move. My lady bits hurt. This can't be normal? I know about menstrual pain - this is worse than whatever I have in my life. Now it makes sense that my boobs have been hurting for the last week.

not sure - but I do know a lot of people have "hormone dumps" after surgery that last for a few months. People say it's because the hormones that are stored in fat cells are released when you start rapidly dropping weight. You might want to let your PCP know, though - if nothing else, for peace of mind.

I feel your pain. I had the same thing happen to me right after surgery when I was dropping weight like crazy. My surgeon told me it was normal. I would still check with your pcp though.

I use the pill to suppress my periods but I had to go off of it for the surgery and it was not fun. Can you go see your gynecologist or call your surgeon?

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
