Post Repair Odour - what to expect?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am really excited about stunbling across this forum in one of my general google searches.

I hope I use it properly, so please forgive me if I don't as have never used a forum before!

One of the many questions you don't think to ask your surgeon is 'what will I smell like down there?'

I am 2 weeks post surgery now. I still have some light blood loss, which is looking much more like the 'end of period' I was told it would resemble. It isn't what I would call 'fishy' but it does have a strong smell. Is this what happens when stitches start to decompose?
