HI, as u had many surgeries till now, it might be due to a complication. pain and smelling of feces suggest there might be a fecal fistula. Its important that u have a review checkup immediately to confirm the cause and get advice from ur doctor on what to do next, bcoz it might lead to fecal peritonitis and infection which might be severe. So act soon . All the best.
