I had a laparoscopy 22/05/18. I was under for 3 hours and they removed a lot of endo but not all. They had to make two additional incisions too so I have 3 wounds healing from the lap. The two on either side of my abdomen seem to be healing fine (touch wood) a little itchiness which is good right?
However, my belly button seems to be infected. Prior to this I was given two sets of antibiotics for PID caused by the lap. Now my belly button is producing orange waxy substance at quite a fast rate and white fluid too. I’m washing with salt water and applying antiseptic cream maybe 3-4 times a day and the build up of junk is quite disgusting. It hurts when I try to clean it in the shower so I’m being as gentle as possible.
Wondering what to do next? Doctors? Over the counter help? Any advice would be great at this is my first post-op and got no help/aftercare from hospital. Not even sure if my stitches are dissolvable they’ve been in for 2 weeks no and don’t look much different to first day post-op.
