Should I worry if I bleed after cecectomy?

Any intervention poses some risks and cecectomy is no exception. Your doctor will let you know what signs should worry you after you are discharged and what you should expect.

If you experience bleeding in combination with other symptoms such as dizziness/lightheadedness after cecectomy, you should call your doctor.

If the bleeding is limited, you should not worry. It is not uncommon to experience some bleeding following this surgery, especially if a biopsy was also necessary. This type of bleeding should subside without intervention. If it is not accompanied by the other symptoms, you should not be concerned.
