Herein we present the case of a 71-year-old woman who had a severe postoperative ecchymotic reaction. Our patient had a history of atrial fibrillation, for which she was given dabigatran etexilate mesylate as an anticoagulant. She discontinued her anticoagulant therapy 2 days before undergoing total laparoscopic hysterectomy with pelvic and periaortic lymph node sampling for uterine endometrioid adenocarcinoma. Despite an uneventful surgical procedure, she had widespread ecchymosis, edema, and anemia.
