I just had a lap done a few weeks ago and my belly button is really different....I have a whole new belly button.  I was wondering how it's going to look once it heal's up since I still have a few stiches to dissolve, but I would imagine the bleeding from the belly button would be due to the scarring in there.  Just my guess.  I don't think it has anything to do with endometriosis, but rather  poor healing from surgery that blood would be leaking out from...maybe they can re-stitch it or something?

have you ever heard of adenomyosis? My cousin had it and had a hysterectomy...it can be pretty confusing to diagnose but your symptoms sound similar...

Hi. I had lap three years ago and I still have scar on my belly button. But there wasnt and there isnt any bleeding, so I dont know anything about that. However, it is not pleasent to look at your belly button and to see something totaly different. I know how it feels. The doctors keep telling me that the scar is going to disapear, but that didnt happen till now and three years have passed...

I think your dermatologist was correct in telling you to see a gyno.  it sounds to me like you're going through a lot of pain and suffering.  i myself just found out that i had endo. and had it diagnosed and removed by Dr. Kanayama.  He's located in NYC and if you google his name you'll immediately be connected to his website.  I must tell you that he has totally changed both my mental and physical well-being.  I now finally feel healthy and had a correct diagnosis.  If you need any more information then please let me know.

Hi,

It sounds like endometriosis in your navel, since you had surgery there.  I have it too.  Mine just started with last months period.  It took me a couple of days to put 2 and 2 together.  I told my GP, but she shrugged it off.  I will return to her in a week, to tell her that it happens around my period, and see what she says.  I might have to go back to my OB.  Please let me know your progress.    :)
