Bleeding 1 yr after hysterectomy- any ideas???

I'm 45 (My mother passed away at 41 from breast cancer) I had hysterectomy (uterus and cervix) Aug 2006.  Had some spotting a couple of months later...had it checked and dr applied to silver nitrate to area where some granules had caused the bleeding. Two weeks ago - bloody discharge a few hours after sex, it stopped..I didn't worry. Last week - spotting (bright red) for at least 4 hours after sex then it quit.  Had to go out of town that evening...Woke up the next morning passing bright red blood again...this time no sex... and it lasted all day until I went to bed that night!  Went to my physicians asst who did urine test and smears, but nothing showed up..no bacteria infection which is what she thought the bleeding was from.  Also, I do not have vaginal dryness. She called in my dr who did my hysterectomy and he checked me as well.  He put me on premarin estrogen cream and an antibiotic and set up another visit in two weeks. The women I talk to have never heard of bleeding like this after a  hysterectomy. I'm writing to you in hopes of ideas of what I might be dealing with!! I'm very concerned!
