I had my surgery 8 days ago. On day 3 I started seeing pus and a weird white thing inside.. I called my doctor and he switched my antibiotics (its now cipro). It's been 5 days since I started on cipro.The weird white that was inside is now gone but there is still a lot of pus coming out (yellow watery discharge), even though it looks normal.There is some smell too :( My doctor wont be in the office here till next week and I'm really worried. How long does it usually take to stop seeing pus?

Unfortunately, the only way to know if your recovery is normal or if you are experiencing a bacterial or fungal infection is to be seen by a well-qualified physician (preferably your surgeon). At this point in your recovery, based on your description and level of concern, I would suggest evaluation as soon as possible by your surgeon or his/her coverage.
