Your bleeding a week after your hysterectomy, brings back memories. After my operation, and once at home, and having no problems, all of a sudden I experienced a large spotting, bright red, and I figured I had opened up something. I was scared to death. Upon my call to the doctors office, I found that sometimes, a pool of blood, sits somewhere and upon moving just right, it empties. I was fine after that, but if I would have only been told, that these things happen this would not have been frightening. Good luck.
