Still Smelly after Flagyl

Okay I have now finished that awful dose of Flagyl and the odour is still here.
I have no pain no fever. Very "slight" spotting (light tan colour) at 4.5 weeks post-op from TAH. Still Swelly Belly.

Would this odour still be from dissolving stitches? Any one else have this odour at 4 weeks out?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

PS: This is embarrassing

HI Kathryn,

I too had that odour due to dissolving stitches. I didn't lose my first stitch until I was just over 4 weeks and that was during my first checkup with my gyn. He was the one to say it was the first one as I only ever saw one myself. I think stitches dissolving really depends on your own bodies healing power.

If you are really concerned perhaps contact your doctor or go and see your GP for reassurance. Sometimes it doesn't hurt to air on the side of caution.

Take care...........Karen

What were your symptoms of infection?

My discharge is not discoloured and not much. Just the normal tan colour.
