Does this sound normal following a hysterectomy?

I had a total hysterectomy last Tuesday, so exactly a week ago.

I ended up staying in hospital for six days as I was quite poorly and had some form of infection, not sure where though.

I still feel awful, in lots of pain but expect this. At 4am I woken by a massive gush of bloody discharge from my vagina.

It was everywhere, I had no pain when it happened or warning.

I've had no previous discharge as it was an abdominal removal. I've also had no loss since then.

I'm still on antibiotics and just wondered if this is normal or should I call hospital.

yes, you should call the hospital.

Definitely call for a medical opinion, though I would expect it to be your GP post discharge. He or she may refer you back to the hospital.mi would be wondering if you had an abscess or haematoma which has burst. Did you keep any evidence?

Do hope you feel better soon.
