Will My Belly Button Infection Heal Properly 2 Weeks Post Op?
I had a tummy tuck two weeks ago. A few days ago I notice a opening in my belly button and its started to smell and leak brown fluid. I went back to my Ps today but he was out of town so I saw is partner. When the nurse remove the tape off my incision a small part of it was leaking but the rest is close. He clean out my belly button with a q-tip and drain my belly. Nothing came of belly. He said its and infection and prescribe me stronger antibiotic. Is my belly button going to heal properly?
