I am almost 3 weeks PO and I took off my binder this afternoon and noticed that there was just a bit of white discharge from my BB. I am hoping it is nothing, but I have been pushing myself lately and now I my have way over done it!! Has this happened to anyone else? Is it something I should be concerned about??
I had a permanent stitch push out of belly button at month 4. It was a spot that just oozed puss (white, no odor), even after I had been on antibiotics for a week. I could tell that there was a stitch in there, but the PS couldn't get to it until week 2.
When he fished it out, I couldn't believe how big of a stitch it was! Neither could he!! LOL... He said several times that I was "unusual" and it was "unusual" to pass a stitch that far out in the healing process.
Once the stitch was out and not irritating that spot in my belly button, it completely healed up within 48 hours.
sounds normal to me. i had a yellowy white discharge coming from my belly button for a couple of months....it wasn't a stitch..guess the hole wasn't closed up yet. i would wake up every day with a dried crust around it and after i worked all day.
my doc told me to use mercurochrome...(sp?) you know, that red stuff? i said...they still make that stuff? he said yea.
i found some at longs...its called mercuroclear..same stuff but no red dye.
i used it after showering and after cleaning my belly button. it stopped oozing after that.
and my belly button, 15 months later...is so beautiful.
This is truly interesting to discuss. Not everyone pays attention to their belly button. Navels could be hot and ticklish. The reality is that not everybody goes in there with soap, baby oil and Q-Tips. Belly button Diversity project researchers welcome the grime, as your belly button bacteria tells a tale. It's a true story about divergent progression, and it's a page-turner. I found this here: New belly button bacteria furthers study of evolution.
It's normal to have a bit of crusting around the belly button after a TT, i think this may last a few weeks,,, it is basically a scab . As long as the surrounding skin looks okay and there is no foul odor or creamy discharge, you will be fine.
