I never had any trouble with my surgery other than normal post op pain and tenderness. No cramping no "period pain" and NO YELLOW DISCHARGE (I do have scar tissue that will bother me, but i had fribro wrapped around my intestines and it had attached everything to my stomache and it had to be cut away, I told my doc it felt like someone had run a 10 mile run in my gut but other then that no problems)
woman will sometimes have a clear oderless discharge.
Yellow or a discharge that looks like cottage cheese and a odor sounds like infection my personal views only any kind of discharge that does not feel normal or look normal needs to be checked out by a doc. If the doc gives you a hard time or run around. Call your insurance
private or state and talk to the on call nurse tell her what is going on and see if she can get the ok to have you seen by a different doc or go to ER
