As the hardening phase began around one week post, I found that the area around my belly button where the cap was has anindentation. My concern is the protruding line below my belly button. I was told to massage it deeply, but will that really help. It is hard and swollen, so will it eventually go away or is this something that I can do nothing about. I did have one lymphatic drainage massage at one week, but I found me massaging 2 to 3/day with my massager relieved my tightness and pain. more.
