Hi all I am 5 1/2 weeks post op for rectocele I have had no problems so far, however could feel something when bending over inside, so had a gentle investigation and found a sharp end of a stitch.. I am going away next week and was hoping to resume marital relations again with my husband as my surgeon said 6 weeks, but worried this isn't possible now as I don't want to do any damage to the wound or cause infection plus I think this may hurt my husband. Would a warm bath help dissolve the stitches or should I wait until the stitches completely dissolve? I am seeing my surgeon on 24th January for post op checks Thanks
