I had my prostate removed last June, and have been wearing Depends and pads ever since. Sometimes I'll notice some small, reddish-orange colored spots in my pads after wearing them. Does anyone have any idea what this is all about? Thank you!

I am about 2 months post-op and have these spots occaisonally. My Uro said it was blood clots as a result of surgery. I would check with your Uro and make sure.

The orange looking color is suggestive of old blood. Not to worry.

Old blood, possibly from the bladder, is what my urologist told me.
