I have had my gallbladder removed by larascopic method. It's been 13 days of my surgery and now I have this pinching burning sensation on the left side of my belly button, my cuts don't seem to be infected, but the pain is intense. Should I have this checked?

Yes, you can consult your primary health provider or the surgeon who operated you in order to investigate the intense pain you are experiencing to the left of the navel.
