After 1 week of anal fistula surgery, does the incision discharge pus with a dangerous fishy odor?

Hello doctor! I had a complicated anal fistula surgery, it's been 1 week now, the incision is long from the labia majora to the anus. There is a constriction rubber band but after surgery, I still see from the incision there is still pus discharge with pink fluid with a fishy smell. I don't know if that's normal, because the doctor said surgery to leave the wound open for drainage, but I'm still worried. Hope a specialist doctor can help me answer the case, after 1 week of anal fistula surgery, the incision is oozing pus with a dangerous fishy odor? Thank you.
