Q: vaginal bleeding 30 years after hysterectomy

once a week I have vaginal bleeding but I had a complete hysterectomy. I have no ovaries either. doc thought for sure it was from kidney stones but ct scan said no.  I have pain right side starting to hurt left as well. about where kidneys would be plus  pain by my pelvix bone. She did a look around and said it was diffinently coming from my vaginal area. I had the hysterectomy 27 years ago because I had cervical cancer. I was told then if I didn't have surgery I would be dead in a year. I also have auto immune disease. but they doctors are arguing over lupus or scleroderma. I personelly don't care I just want it controled. Oh a week ago I had to pee and it was like an old rusty pipe color. which for me is very odd. it's usually clear as can be. then when I was having the pain and went to the doctor they tried to get a urine sample. I'm not good at peeing on command. but I noticed that my underpants had blood on them and my hand did as well from holding it trying to catch a sample for them. So it's happened twice in a week not every day. But still I don't think it should happpen at all. Can you help me?

I am confused also without having a clear understanding of your history and exam. So, the doctors that you can see will be more helpful than me.


You might want to see a Urologist or OB/GYN who can inspect some of that "plumbing" for you. It is possible that you have an rectocele or urethrocele (intestines or pee-tube falling into the vagina). A thorough pelvic examination would be helpful.


Hopefully the confusion will clear-up with more specialists involved.

Go to the doctor, this is a sign of something serious.
