Always another worry....
We'll put a call into the doctor but David has noticed that last few times he has urinated in the toilet that
there has been some bloody discharge.

Has anyone else experienced that? We are 2 weeks post-op.

I had blood for 6 weeks, post-op. Sounds normal.

Sounds normal to us as well. I'd say the thing to watch for is if the blood is suddenly a greater amount or brighter than usual you'd want to question it, but otherwise it does continue for a few weeks.

WhoFan,

It's smart to call the doctor when in question. I'm sure he will tell you that 2-weeks out minor bleeding is not a problem.

Good Thoughts,

Vet
