Last night I was cleaning my incision before I hopped into bed. While I was cleaning it a stitch came out!! I didn’t know that at the time. I called Kevin in since he is my medical consult (Kevin worked in the OR for 10 years as a surgical tech) He is the one who told me what it was. There was another stitch poking out of my incision. I went to pull that one out…and it was ATTACHED!!! OWEEEEE!!! Every cell in my body shriveled up in pain.
Kevin instantly felt that I needed to call the doctor. Well, if you have read this blog for a while you know how I felt about that. If it looks scary or the pain interrupts my daily routine then I will call. Otherwise, I will just keep cleaning it and I will stay far, far away from that stitch.
What I don’t know is if these stitches are supposed to be dissolvable or what. The nice one that came out last night didn’t look dissolvable. And the one poking out doesn’t look dissolvable. But I don’t have any appointments to get stitches out so are they just supposed to work their way out?? I don’t know. I’ll just keep playing along until it heals up. Weird.
