POD 9, Hard, Red Skin Under Belly Button That Is Not Improving?
I had a TT on 2/5. Since my surgery, I have an indurated area that extends from the midline of my incision. It is two inches long, and forms a triangular pattern, with the apex under my belly button. At my last appt, he placed me on Keflex. I have also, per my doctor's instructions, kept my binder off when I am not up out of bed. I am concerned for possible blood flow issues, or problems with skin dying in this area. Can anyone tell me if this is is something that is seen routinely postoperatively?
