I just had umbilical hernia surgery and the first sign was a 'popped out' belly button. It probably occurred during pregnancy but it was there 12 weeks post-partum & that's how it was diagnosed. Definitely consult a dr about this.
A few years ago I had surgery to remove a hernia next to my belly button which was removed through my belly button, my belly button was stitched up and now I find it very difficult to clean it as it seems dirt remains in it and I can't get it out, any suggestions?
My son is now 6 weeks old and ever since he was 4 weeks old, his belly button came out. What can help it go back in. Every time I see it, I feel like crying. My poor baby. I feel as is he's suffering so does hubby think the same. What can I do for it to go back to place???
Now that I'm not pregnant, the OB said that I have a small hernia just under the belly button. I guess that explains why It felt the way it did. My belly button hasn't gone down yet, still sticks out a bit...ugh! If I lie down, I can push it back in with no problem. I still have jelly belly, so it is pretty easy. When I stand up, out it pops.It just feels really weird in that area, and when the baby nurses and kicks a bit, it hurts.

Im told that i was born with a hernia, i have two small bumps dirrectly above my belly button that usually never bother me. Ive been running, doing sit ups, etc. a lot more than usual lately and the bumps are beginning to stick out more at times. They only really bother me when i work out, but that will eventually become a problem seeing that i need to for school sports. What should i do? Is there any treatment?
My belly button is swollen and dark brown in color. I first noticed this when I wore a denim pants that was too tight. The doctor gave me ser\veral antibiotics like cephalexin, bactrim and erythromycin. Once I take the antibiotics it will swell and then burst and dark brown blood will come out. The thing is after a month or so it will reccur again. The doctors had took samples of it but found no growth in it. The ultrasound result was also negative.
diagnosed it as umbrical hernia with seperated stomach muscels.I will have surgery 01/08 for the hernia repair and abdominoplasty(tummy tuck).For finance help try carecredit,many doctors will accept this program.
Last night I woke up to a terrible pain in my belly button. It feels as if someone is pinching my belly button and pulling it inwards. It is better now that Im not laying down but it still hurts when I move certain ways, bend over, or urinate.

The doctor said my next check-up would be June. I am having intermittent sharp burning pain above my belly button, I can feel something hard there. I told dr in March that area was tender and it was swelled. He did not really say anything, so I figured it had to do with incision. To me the swelling is still there, is this something anyone else has experienced, could this be a Hernia? The last couple of days it has begun to hurt a little more.
do my symptoms fit those of hernia? Can ultrasound detect hernia? If it is hernia, do I need to do something about it (I have no pain)? I want to get prepared so I know what to ask my family doctor once I get the ultrasound report. My family doctor normally does not give detailed information unless I ask specific questions. Thanks in advance for any help.

Could your doc have meant a belly button hernia? That's an unfortunate consequence of some forms of lap surgery. If it gets worse, you may have to have it taken care of.
I thought DH was just being paranoid about Aubryana's belly button, but she'll be six weeks on Tuesday and it sticks out, more so when she screams and looks like this...anyone?
i had pain around my belly button pretty bad and i didn't think anything of it but it ended up being a hernia...i didn't discorver that until my daughter was 6 weeks old. i'd mention it!! especially if your on medicaid ( i can't stress this enough ) because since i didn't mention mine and theres no documentation i suffered from it during pregnancy there is no way to prove it is pregnancy related therefore i can't get the necessary repair surgery covered by insurance.

She still isn't sure exactly what causes it, I go back to the doctor tomorrow, but she said a one possibility among many was that it could be a cyst that formed when my umbilical cord was healing and it continues to get infected. Surgery would then be the next step if that turns out to be true. My belly button is red and sore inside and below. Blood, puss and a bad smell are coming out. PS.

I have a ten week old daughter and I think she has a herniated belly button. Her belly button protrudes almost a full inch it is purple in color and squishy to the touch. It protrudes much worse when she is crying. She seems as though her belly button causes her pain(she winces when it is touched) She routinly cries for hours each day usually in the evening.
Anyway, the rest of the umbilical cord fell off when he was 5 days old. His belly button looked fine and seemed to be kinda going in, but now it is completely sticking out...the entire belly button. I do not remember if my first son's did this or not, and I am thinking it didn't. Jesse's just looks so weird...I should take a picture later and post it so I can get some opinions. Am I worrying over nothing? My MIL said if it still looks like that in a week, then to mention it to the doc.
I went to see a doctor and was told that my umbilical cord was not tied off properly when I was born and it is leaking urine through the belly button. She says I need surgery, but through antibiotic creams, the belly button healed. However, if I do not keep gauze in my belly button, it splits again. I call it my belly plug and as long as I use one, it no longer splits and it absorbs the discharge and odor.
I had hernia repair surgery with mesh about 6wks ago. I have one 5in long incision at my belly button,4 about 1in long incisions, 4 about 1/2in spots (these little spots did not have stitches or staples) and 1 area where the drain was at. I am an overweight person who has a large belly and I am 40yr female. I feel good except a burning sometimes very painful spot in my abdomen it is between the large incision and where the drain was right about where my hernia was.
