My Belly Button is Stil Oozing Fluid Twelve Weeks Post Op, Why?

I started Cipro and my PS did an exploratory to search for a possible permanent stitch that he thought may be causing the problem. He found nothing, even after using dye to follow a path to where it was. Two weeks later he used a silver nitrate after removing the stitches. It is still oozing, no odor and now I am quite concerned. Next he is talking about doing a culture. What else could be causing this issue? Thank you - Gale
