    Hi Steph,

    My surgery was 3 month ago

    Some of stitches are still there!

    A bit softer but there!

    They are going to dissolve within 3-6 month.

    Take it eazy, most important- don't lift anything more than half of a kettle weight!

    Take care

      Stitches dissolve before 6 months Sheeba in fact they should have dissolved by 16 weeks post op. If they haven't there's a risk they could become embedded and possibly infected.

      Yes Matron, between 3-6 month

      Im 3 month after my surgery or 12 weeks, stitches are not embedded or infected

      They are softer, but still there

      Im checking it with my doctor every 4 weeks

      She is very happy with heeling

      Take care😊

      You are only 12 weeks. Not all of my sutures had dissolved at 12 weeks. They can take up to 16 weeks to dissolve but not 6 months. You would have an infection long before then if they hadn't dissolved and probably a pelvic infection.
