    6 Days After surgery very little amount of bleeding (as much bleeding as there is in the pants) with little bad smell. Is that normal ?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      Hello, This is normal, and should be gone in 1-3 days. You may have vaginal bleeding for up to a week after the surgery; this is also normal. You will be given a prescription for pain medicine. Call your caregiver if the medicine is not relieving your pain.
