what does an infection smell like

I am 3.5 post and have just noticed a discharge smell much like vinegar. Is this a sign of infection? My recovery has been progressing wonderfully and just saw the doc 3 days ago, she said everything looked great. The smell just started last night. I didn't know if this was a normal healing smell for a TVH or not.
Thanks

Hi

Did she check you down there? I think you (if you haven't already call the advice nurse) I hope everything is fine.

Hi,

You know what smells are normal for you and what smells are abnormal, eventhough things have changed down there because of the surgery. I would still tend to think that if it smells like something isn't right, then something probably isn't right. If it were me I would wait a day or two just to see how it goes. If you notice pain or fever or any other alarms going off in your head, then I would give the doc a call. Naturally, if the smell continues or gets worse I would also give the doc a call.
