Cryosurgery: The cryotherapy destroys some tissue, and as the tissue peels off or sloughs, there may be a smell. It would be more helpful is you would share what was treated with cryotherapy.

Cryosurgery: You should have a watery discharge. If it is purulent or foul smelling, call your doctor's office.
