I think it might be getting infected, there was some green discharge today and only a fever of 99.6 so we will see.... lots of pressure today, and a fish wire stitch was on the TP too. HMMM

Diana, if you're seeing green discharge on the toilet paper, you can't wait until Tuesday to see a doctor. If that's an infection brewing it's only going to get worse. Call your doctor's number and his answering service should be able to connect you with the doctor who will be taking care of his patients while he's on vacation. Otherwise, you need to go to the ER and get on some antibiotics. Waiting is not the right thing to do. Please keep us posted....I hope you feel better soon.

P.S. Unless you've gotten the okay from your doctor, please don't insert anything in the vagina (especially since you have torn your cuff).

I haven't I done gave all my tampons to my sister, I haven't asked if I could or not I was just thinking, but see my thinking gets me in to trouble.... LOL As far as the green discharge is wasnt like neon green it was like greenish/yellowish I can't really explain it. There is a funny smell but not like aweful just really different, its not like a earthy, or metallic smell I would just say off!

greenish/yellow still is a sign of infection. Please don't wait. Please take your sisters' advice and call DR...

You may have an infection.
Call the doctor for an antibiotic.

You need to call your doctor. Greenish yellowish discharge is probably a sign of infection. I would not wait until Tuesday as the infection can get worse. It is a sign that something is not right. Please call your doc and get the on call doc. Explain what you are seeing so that he/she can do something for you before it gets worse.
