I have had pain about and inch from my belly button for a week and foul odor. A week later it started oozing yellow pus. I went to my doctor and she had no idea what it was. She said shes seen this in babies but never in my age. She said this happens in babies and its called a herniated belly butto. Its gotton worse but i cant call the doc til monday so i was wondering if any one had an idea what it was? If it helps i had gallbladder surgry a year and a half ago and one incision they made is in my belly button, so idk if that has any thing to do with what is going on now. Also it hurts to move any direction and when i touch my stomach. It also feels like i gotta pee or the feeling when u gotta pee and someone pushes ur bladder, so idk if that helps, i just wanna know what it is! can you please help?

Yup, it's some kind of abscess. It's not that rare, I'm not sure why your doctor never heard of it. It's probably not related to your surgery last year.

Definitely seek medical attention again. Find an urgent clinic if necessary.
