Post aper op leakage

Hi, has anyone had experience of discharge from surgery site from the wound where my anus was? My surgery was 1 year ago and in January I had major discharge from a build up of fluids, went back to see surgeon who said he wasn't concerned. I am however concerned as 5 months on have to change pant liner 3 times a day and doesn't seem to be slowing. Rang colorectal nurse a couple of months ago and she just said better out than in and will take time ??
