I've had a seton for about a year and a half.  It drains.  A lot.  I keep guaze on it and change it every time I use the restroom.  I worry that there is an odor if I go more than an hour or so without changing it.  My husband has sinus problems and can't smell very well and I'm too embarassed to ask anyone else if I'm smelly!  Have those of you that have setons noticed that the smelly drainage is smelly enough to be smelled by others??
Thanks blush

I've had mine for just over 2 years. Ok...this is going to sound weird, but have you smelled the bottom of your pants after wearing them? That should give you a pretty good idea if it is noticeable or not.
