6 wks post op and started bleeding in shower
« on: August 16, 2014, 10:21:44 PM »
I am 6 weeks post op from a open knee surgery to fix my patella which was broken... i went to the doctor yesterday and he removed the steri strips.  i took a shower today and the incision line was bleeding a little bit. Not much but enough to scare me.  Should I be worried. 

It was a thin line of bleeding and it was bright red.  i was moving a bit in the shower.  Anyone with this experience?
