Leaking from Bellybutton After Abdominoplasty, Should I be Worried?
Abdominoplasty 5 1/2 weeks ago in Mexico. Coming out of anesthesia I ripped the drain out. Replaced 4 hours later. 10 days after surgery the drain fell out and the wound healed quickly. The fluid started leaking from my bellybutton. If I leaned over the sink and massaged my stomach it would squirt out. I have been tested for infection and that is negative. It has now stopped but because my bellybutton has healed. Should I be worried that the fluid is still being produced with no place to go?
Update: Thank you very much for your replies and concerns. I'm in Las Vegas and the PS is in Tijuana so it's not too far away. I have made an appointment to see him this Friday and will post the results of that appointment.
Thanks again for the advice!
