Herniated Belly Button

Posted by Tami on April 17, 1999 at 13:31:20

Please Help-
My 16 month old son has a herniated belly button. He has had this conditon since he was two months old.  Some days it is much worse than others.  However, it is always noticable.  One doctor said we needed surgery, so we got a second opinion.  The second doctor said just ignore and don't worry about it can always be fixed latter. My concern is that it will turn into something that will cause him pain or be harder to take care of latter in life.  It doesn't seem to bother him, but he has always had trouble with bowel movements (I'm not sure if they are related).
Thank You-

Dear Tami:
Please see my discussion of umbilical hernias posted as an answer to a similar question posted as "bulging belly button" 4/7/99. I believe this will be useful.
