I had surgery a year ago for a dermoid cyst in my left ovary. This is my third time having surgery for this type of problem, however this last time the surgery was done laproscopically. While I was recoving I got an infection and my belly button started to leak this really smelly discharge. I was treated for the infection and recovered for my surgery with in a month. BUT a year later and my belly button still discharges 1 every two weeks or so. I went to my doctor and he said everything why fine, but I've never had any problems with my belly button before. Is this normal? How long will this last? jo9510
