Brown discharge from naval. Have umblical hernia, yeast infection. Help?

hi, my name is David and the doctors seem to think I have a small umbilical hernia . Today while inspecting inside my naval, a smelly brown looking discharge that also appeared somewhat bloody was in my naval. What could this be? Is it related to my hernia or do I have two problems, a yeast infection and a hernia. Also, pain that was persistent around my naval area seems to be a lot less since I was first told I may have a hernia.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
You have got pain at the navus , the doctor told you that you have a small umblical hernia. You also got a smelly, brown, bloody discharge as well.
Hernia is entirely different and you are getting discharge due to some other infection, most probably a bacterial infection. Dont worry it will be cured soon with antibiotics and supporting medicines as you are already under treatment.
Regarding hernia you need not worry, if it is increasing or bothering you can go for operation.
Wishing for a quick recovery.
Best regards.
