White fluid from navel, pressure below navel, suffering from hernia. Undergone surgery. UTI?

i had surgery last year, they removed a foot of my large intestine and my surgery cut was a long one down mwhole torso area. I now (12 months later) have a hernia right by my belly button and I am scared because for past 2 days i noticed some white fluid from my navel, no smell though. Sometimes I have alot pressure below my navel almost like a UTI feeling but its not a UTI?

Is the discharge from the operated site? And why was the surgery done-why was your intestine removed?
If you are having white discharge from your naval along with pressure sensation it is best to consult your surgeon to rule out any infection or other complications.
UTI presents with burning urination, increased frequency of urination, maybe associated with fever and pain.
Kindly consult your surgeon as soon as possible to find out the cause for the white discharge
Take care
