I had a tummy tuck performed 2 months ago. For three days straight my belly button started to hurt very badly when it never had before. In fact I have total feeling in it, and its nice and soft, no complaints. BUT, all of a sudden I woke up one morning and the pain was gone.
When I looked at it, the belly button had sunk in, to actually look more like a normal belly button. Now one half is sunk in and the other half (right side) is swollen, I figure because im still pretty swollen on my right side just above the main incision.
I cannot google enough to find anything about a bellybutton caving in. Im scared to death some suture popped and the whole thing is going to rip open.
The pain was the worst imaginable but two months later, and still struggling, I do feel it was well worth it. Would I do it again, no way!

My doctor blew me off with the extreme pain I was having five weeks post op. Turns out I was bleeding internally.
