I am 40 and had a hysterectomy 2 weeks ago, ever since I have had a really bad smelly discharge and slight spotting but today I have period type pains and a bleed like a period, they took my womb and cervix and had a prolapsed vagina repair, is this normal?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you.
In view of the foul smelling discharge along with the pains and bleeding, thereâs a possiblity of you suffering from some infection and possibly an anerobic infection. You need to consult a gynecologist urgently and seek an opinion.
The discharge might be examined under a microscope and possibly culture & sensitivity done.
Youâll likely need a course of antibiotics (including metronidazole) to take care of the infection. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
