    Yes, it’s normal but the stitches are dissolving. That’s is usually the process

    Absolutely. They can get quite irritating at times and sore but they dissolve and soften over time. One lady I remember said she felt like a pineapple was stuck in there!! It gets better.

    Rest, rest and more rest is the answer. Takes awhile but it does get better.

    Hi

    I had my repair in May and I could feel prickly stitches when I walked 4 weeks after surgery. I mentioned it to my surgeon at my 6 week check up and he said it was all normal. At 6 weeks I still had stitches they hadn't dissolved. Ur very early stages yet, the op is quite brutal ur body will take time 2 heal. Rest up 😚

    Normal. I visited my doctor on the eight week and I still had stitches. When I entered my 5 months after surgery I formed a watery discharge. I called my doctor and he stated that the deeper stitches are healing with takes 5 to 6 months
