Hi!
A bad smell from the anal area after surgery can be indicative of infection, and this should be ruled out first. Swab tests should be done, and growth looked for on cultures. Appropriate antibiotics both local and oral should be given. Other than this you could be releasing foul smelling gas due to something you ate.
Please consult your treating doctor regarding this. Take care!
