I had ablation surgery on March 8, 2013 and I'm still having discharge and seem to have had a period. I am having serious back pain since and it hurts to even sit in a chair. I also believe because of the back pain I am having its causing me to have headaches. What can I do to relieve myself of this pain? Will this go away? Do I need to go back to the doctor for this? Could it be a side effect of my surgery? Someone please help tell me whats going on.

This back pain and discharge needs to be looked into medically. While a bit of a discharge after the surgery isn't unusual, this should have ended by now.

What you are describing tends to point more to an infection.
