It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, and physical examination. Your symptoms may be due to entrapment of nerve in a scar. It would be prudent to talk to your surgeon. Belly ring is not a health issue but a cosmetic one. Your doctor may be able to assist with that. Wish you good health!
