You will get discharge and pain for some time more.The pain will be due to the stiches.But the discharge shouldnt be foul smelling,if so,please see a doctor again.You might be having infection.Usually with stiches a course of antibiotics and pain killers are given.Sit in a hot tub few times a day.Dont sit crosslegged.Apply betadine ointment on the wound site.Good hygiene is very important.
