Sorry, but I just had a seton placed (horseshoe 270 degrees, so it was a big one) and I'm supposed to put antibiotic cream on my butt and I swear I can feel the seton with my finger. I'm less than two days out of the surgery, but is that normal? It's a little unnerving, that's really why I'm asking.

Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities; I take pleasure in infirmities, reproaches, necessities, persecutions, distresses, for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Cor

Yep, totally a thing. It feels very weird if it moves. Good luck with it!
