belly button issues post DIEP

Hi Dr. D - You performed my PBM with DIEP reconstruction in 2010 and recently I have started having issues with my belly button. My belly button is very red and it is "leaking". I wouldn't go as far as to say it is puss, but it does get crusty whenever this "liquid" dries. I don't think it itches or hurts, but I wouldn't know since my belly button is completely numb. Do I need to be concerned about this? Thank you!
