I wish I had been opened instead of having laparoscopy surgery. I would rather have a scar on my belly than no belly button! I don't know what the surgeon did but he butchered my belly button, it looks so bad that I will never be able to wear a bikini again and I'm quite young. Has this happened to anyone else or did I have the worst surgeon ever? They always tell you laparoscopy is better but in my case it has been a curse since I have had all sorts of problems and on top of that I'm scarred for life Sad

hi sorry to hear your having problems after your op. I had my op done laproscopically and the only scar that is really visible now is the one under my bust line. I can see a small scar near my belly button but have to look really close to see it clearly. I had my op in the uk. if your really unhappy I would seek medical advise about your problem and see if there is anything that can be done about it. take care.
