After c-section

This is my 1st time having a c-section.
So I have a couple of questions for those who recently had one.

I had my c-section on Aug 26th (2wks ago)

Approx. How long did it take to stop bleeding?

I went to the doctor Tuesday and she said everything was fine. But as of today there a smell coming from my incision. I called and left a message for the doctor to call me back.

Has anyone experience this?

I know these are personal questions however any answers would be helpful.

I just stop bleeding last week. That was five weeks post partum. It can take 6 to 8 weeks. Mine was smelling I just used my hand with soap and rinsed with water and that helped. As long as the incision looks good you are good to go!
