Complications after Abdominal Laparoscopic Surgery

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hello,

I had my 3rd abdominal lap surgery almost 5 weeks ago. I now have a suture granuloma inside the navel incision and boy is it painful! Has anyone else ever had this complication and if so, how was it treated? Im growing more and more concerned, because of the lingering pain and now, there is yellowish drainage. I called the nurses, but they say as long as there is no fever or redness right now, to just take pain meds while it heals. Something feels wrong tho. My next post op is October 15th.
