HI
Well come HCM
I really appreciate your concern, you have stated the two conditions here one is colon resection and second is oozing from the umbilical region, in my opinion both the conditions are different from each other and they are not related the umbilical leaking could be infection, it could be abscess formation, here the exploration of umbilicus is advisable till then local application of Povidone Iodine ointment can be tried hope this information helps.
I find this answer helpful
