Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
I Still Have Pus Coming out of my Belly Button
I had a tummy tuck 2 years ago. I noticed about 6 months after my surgery my belly button started pussing, and about a year later one of the stitches had popped out of my belly button. The surgeon pulled the stitch up and cut it, telling be that should solve the problem, saying that my body was rejecting one of the permanent stitches. I am still pussing, it is yellow ooze that is very unpleasant to the smell. Should I use peroxide to heal it?
