Thank you doc.

She bled not severely on Saturday, with pain, she s still bleeding a very small quantity , brownish like when period is finishing. That pat seems normal, but my doubt is : can it be still a consequence of the procedure she had?

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
you are welcome

thank you positive feedback.

it is normal to feel severe lower pelvic cramps after this sort of procedure

sometimes the cramps can be felt in the flank

the spleen is pretty high up in the left posterior abdomen behind the stomach

sometimes constipation or stomach acid gastritis can cause pain in this area.

sometimes kidney stones on the left can cause pain there as well, so these other causes have to be ruled out.

let me know if you have other questions.
