That's right! No anus!

I'm totally sewed up. My surgeon took out my entire large intestine, rectum and anus. For the first 10 days or so after surgery my ass-cheeks felt like they were slightly misaligned, like... crooked. But that went away. Guess what didn't go away? Ass smell. You know- that unforgettable sweaty ass smell. I used to think it had something to do with poo residue, but nope. I have no poo in my butt, yet that smell still exists. I figure it must be a usual glandular secretion and I don't even think of it as dirty.
