I had the Her Option cryoablation done on Sept. 23, 2010 and was back to normal activites two days later. However I have had a very watery discharge that had now begun to have a foul, musky odor? Has anyone else has this problem?

Great! Glad you followed up with your doctor's office and are more confident about what's going on. Keep us posted on your recovery. I read in some of those other posts (if I'm remembering correctly) that it may take a while for the discharge to go away completely.
Amazing how just knowing what's going on can empower you, right?

Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHer. From what I've read about the procedure, the watery discharge is normal. I'm not sure about the odor though. Did the doctor's office say anything about that? I'm thinking a foul odor could be bad, so you may want to call the doctor's office and mention it. It may be an indicator of an infection. Your doctor's office would be the best post-procedure resource. In case you want to read other women's experiences, there are several here:
Good luck and let us know what the doctor says. Your experience could help someone else!

I did speak with the nurse in my doctors office earlier today, and the doctor informed her that since I'm not having any pain and the discharge is clear that the odor is a normal. He said the odor stems from shedding the dead tissue and it should go away as the discharge lessens. He also said I could use an OTC Betadine douche if the smell is to bothersome for me.
