Somewhere I heard that surgeons try not to mess with the navel because it can be an emotional area due to the fact that it's the origin of our lives. I wonder if it might be worth visiting a dermatologist to get ideas on how to keep the area clean and dry?
Oh, wow, that interesting about the bellybutton...I don't have mine anymore and at least for me, it is not a big deal!!! The first surgery went around it but there must have been issues with the subsequent ones because its been gone for about 8 years!!!
Summerstorm--before I switched to Hollister I had to cut the wafer tape around my "bellybutton" area because it would always pull up and leave a sticky mess which would also start the tape separating around my wafer. Maybe you could do that and at least be able to clean it...
I am SO glad I am not the only one with the lettuce problem!!! Thanks for the tp suggestion
