If your surgery was 3 months ago and you are now experiencing a swollen abdomen and pus coming out of your navel, this is NOT normal and you should call the surgeon's office who operated on you as soon as possible. (Could you please explain to me what a "dubbed" hernia is? Thank you)

I can't believe the clinic you went to said this was "OK!"

Most post-surgical infections will show up sooner than three months, but any number of things could be going on inside you and you cannot put off finding out what that may be.

If you are on the West Coast, you still have time to reach your doctors office before the week-end, and if you're East Coast, you can still call their office and ask to have the physician on call call you.

Please take your temperature...........if you are running a fever, this information will be of vital importance to the doctor.
I wish you the very best and please let us know how you're doing!

Hi there.  Absolutely go back to the doctors sweetie!  I am so sorry you have this going on.  Sounds like an infection. You'll need antibiotics.  Please stay in touch and let me know how you are doing! Peace and luck
