I am now 13 weeks post op from A&P vagina repair and hysterectomy and feel pretty much back to normal now.
I went for my post op check up today and everything is good..healing nicely and no bulges. I have one very long stitch way up inside which only now and again I can feel just a tiny prickle but it doesn't bother me in the slightest. The assistant to my surgeon said she didn't want to pull it and that it would dissolve in time and it would be a long purple stitch. She was happy with the healing and so was I. However, my cousin mentioned to me that she was surprised I still had a stitch or even stitches still inside as hers were all dissolved at 6 weeks.
I have no no idea about such things but my personal opinion is that the longer they stay in the better, especially the good strong ones, but that's just me.
What is the norm?
