I had a tummy tuck 3 yrs. ago. 6 months ago I started draining a clear, odorless fluid from my belly button that does not stop.

Your drainage near the belly button is from a retained suture
Chronic Seroma Or Infected Suture
Smoking pot has nothing to do with it. You've probably had a fluid collection all along since the surgery, as it is likely a complication of that surgery. It's not your fault, and it's not necessarily the surgeons fault either, but you should look for a new doctor that will be honest with you. There is no need to lie.
Best of luck!
