So I am really happy about how everything turned out with my surgery - except my belly button. It appears to be completely healed up. BUT - I don't think that it looks like a normal belly button. However, for my whole life I had a huge belly and therefore a huge hole and massive "innie", so I don't know that I know what is normal. As I think I've told you guys, the surgeon kept the umbilicus intact but then poked it through the skin and manufactures the outside part of it.
Here's a couple pics - let me know what you guys think - is this normal looking? And please be honest - I see the surgeon next week and will talk to him about this!
