3 weeks post-op using metro-gel for discharge

Well I am 3 weeks post op and I started having a very heavy yellowish green discharge, went to my OBGYN. He said no infection just that I was producing a extremely large amount of discharge, he prescribed two med's MetroGel-vaginal for five days and Flagyl for seven day's. The problem I am having now is from the MetroGel the discharge isn't yellow and watery anymore it is white and very thick (exactly like cottage cheese) Eewwwwww!!! Sorry so graphic, but this is grossing me out worse than the other discharge, this is clump's!!!!! I absolutely don't want to call the doctor because I 've already had two pelvic's since surgery and they were both horrid. The first was three day's after surgery due to having a high fever and pain and it ended up being a UTI. The thought of him going in my "danger zone" is horrifying!!!!!!!! Am I just being paranoid or will this to will pass ( the discharge)??? I just do not want to call the doctor because knowing him he'll say let's just have another look see and in reality he is the one who said "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN THE VAGINA FOR SIX WEEKS" and he already broke the cardinal rule!!!!!At least in my opinion!!! Help!!!! Trish the scaredy cat.

Hi Trish,

At least give the office a call to see what's going on with this new change. Sounds like a yeast infection now. You've been through the very worse part. It's down hill from here on...unless you develope a complication and don't follow up with it. It's just a call. OK, and maybe a little visit. We'd rather have you go for one more little visit then get worse. Maybe there's nothing wrong....won't know till you call. You can do this.

3 weeks post-op using metro-gel for discharge

I'm almost 4 weeks post op and finish up my 5 day treatment of MetroGel tonight. MetroGel can cause a yeast infection, which may be responsible for your cottage-cheese looking discharge. Also, I've noticed that the discharge after using the MetroGel is kind of scary looking on its own! You wouldn't believe how scared I was to use the MetroGel the first night. As you said, everything stresses not to put anything in the vagina for six weeks! All went well, though.

If I were you, I think I'd call the doctor just to make certain you don't have a yeast infection. He'll probably want to do a culture, but hopefully that won't be too painful. Good luck!
