Possible: It is not unusual to bleed for several weeks after a c-section and the odor issue can be subjective. "feeling bad" is not very specific but i would suggest seeing your doc; it could be an infection of the uterus or even the great if you are breast feeding. It's uncommon to have a uterine infection after c-section remote from the procedure, check your temp but discharge and some bleeding not unus.
