white, thick discharge(gross)

i am 6 weeks post op. finally getting my strength back. still sore around the incision. today i started having a really thick, white discharg. i wondered if anyone else has this. i was put on a yeast infection pill about two weeks ago, and the dr did a culture last week to see if it had cleared up, and it had. this discharge is unlike one that i have ever had.
i had a tah bso on jan 26, 2005. i am now on estrogen patch.

Hi tontee,

You know, I'd call the doctor just to let him in on the latest. It could be irritation from disolving stitches or granulation...or it could be the new normal for you. It's been so long for me not to bleed, that I have forgotten what is normal. The " thick " part doesn't sound too good, so I'd call if it was me.

Best of luck,

Gee, I don't know what to suggest since you say your doctor already checked you for a yeast infection. I haven't had that many yeast infections before, but mine always had a thick, white, cottage cheese like discharge. (sorry to so graphic here) I'd definitely tell my doctor about that discharge just to be safe. Is there any vulvar itching at all with this discharge?
Please let us know what you find out.

Sometimes that yeast treatment works too well and we can go the other way, ending up with a bacterial infection of another kind (closely related to yogurt cultures... I know gross, but that's why it's recommended that we eat yogurt when taking antibiotics).

Call your doc, explain the new symptoms and ask if they want to see you. They probably will.

Stay Strong and Heal Well!!!

I agree with moonstone - yogurt, and I have been told to put it right at the site! Some good probiotics might be in order. Also avoid yeast foods, as those feed yeastie beasties in the "down there" region, and also in our sinus cavities. You might want to do an on-line search on yeast infections and find out some remedies - I don't like the ones the Docs give out, as they often cause, for me, other imbalances.

Are you doing sitz baths? My doc told me to do them now, and while they were strange at first. . . .very soothing and helps clean things very very well. I don't have that discharge any more.

Tontee - i agree with moonstone-opal - the opposite of a yeast infection is a bacterial infection, which has to be treated. The yogurt is good for yeast infection (again, antibiotics is a big cause in women) on the "spot" or eaten. I have not had too many yeast infections - as i start he yogurt as soon as i start an antibiotic, but when the yeast infection cure is too strong, you get the bacterial, which is a whole other treatment.

Call your Dr, so it doesn't get painful to you - and get will soon
