It was a created belly button by my wonderful surgeon because mine was removed. I had a tummy tuck done January 2015. I had gone back to my dr suspected a distended stitch in the new belly button he created for me. (I had 11 lbs of skin/scar tissue removed after loosing 140lbs) he had said it was fine. I've always suspected it didn't look right to me. My friends dog tries to lick my stomach there but doesn't do this to anyone else. Well today there's green crust stuck to my stomach. It's red and seeping yellowish liquid. Do I return to my surgeon or go to a walkin?
