What causes pain on the belly with bad smell after having appendix removal surgery?
Hello I have had seveen surgeries for female issues. Recently I had appendix removed due to old scar tissue they made an incision from my belly button to bikini line. My belly. Button now hurts above and below. The site. Surgery was one month ago today. It also smells of feces.
HI, as u had many surgeries till now, it might be due to a complication. pain and smelling of feces suggest there might be a fecal fistula. Its important that u have a review checkup immediately to confirm the cause and get advice from ur doctor on what to do next, bcoz it might lead to fecal peritonitis and infection which might be severe. So act soon . All the best.
