    They usually start coming out 5-6 weeks, mine were there until 11 weeks. The SSF stitches 12-16 weeks (this will depend of the type of stitches used of course as some women here have permanent ones). Weeks 5-6 can feel like a step backwards but it will improve. X

    Chrissy, it seems stitches come out in waves for me at least. I am post op 11 weeks  urethra repair, anterior and posterior repair plus vaginal hernia a repair and it seemed that I had stitches dry up and let go at 4 weeks, six weeks, and even 10 weeks or so. My dr says the pain is from the stitches drying up and pulling on the tissue before they actually dissolve. I know different places use different sutures but my dr said the thread for stitching is very strong . 

    I describe recovery from all these procedures as a roller coaster ride so buckle up and hang on for the ride! Praying you have an UNeventful recovery!😄🙏

    I am now 5 weeks after anterior repair and 8 months after posterior repair  and I am more sore now than at the beginning of recovery. First 5 minutes  in morning feel not too bad but gets more sore as day goes on  The worst thing is worrying that it will all ‘fall down’  again. Trying to rest and do everything I am supposed  to. Coconut oil and a sitz bath have been the most soothing for me. Hope we are all back to normal soon.
