I'm 21 years old and I feel like I should be 80. Since Jan of 2004 I have had my appendix out and the surgeon ruptured my auorta. I had to have an I&D (Incision and Drainage) to remove necritizing fashitis (the flesh eating virus) and post op cellulitis. I had my gallbladder removed became septic with a strep infection had a pulmonary imbolism that I still have heart problems from to this day. I have graves disease and gerd and it seems like things are just getting worse.

When they did my I&D surgery they left my incison open for the wound to heal. I was cut from my belly button to the top of my public bone and the incision took about 5 months to fully heal. Now Ive found a piece of what I think is unhealed flesh inside yes inside my bellybutton. There is a constant goo (Real technical term I know) coming from my bellybutton and it bleeds. Ive been but on a 10 day course of antibiotics of Keflex and Cipro because they thought it was a Candida infection but things arent getting any better.

I dont have any insurance so I cant see the doctor as much as I need to and Im afraid this is progressing into something that is going to caues me to have another surgery or another terrible illness and I just cant handle that again.

If anyone has any ideas on what this may be or what I should do please please please let me know! I appricate it greatly!
