how do you know if internal stitches tear?

I tore internal stitches at 10 days, when I knocked a glass of water off the nightstand and leaned over with a towel to sop up the water. I immediately knew I had done a Very Bad Thing when I felt a sharp pain across my abdomen.

This was followed the next day by a bit of vaginal bleeding. I know it was related because it was the only time I had any bleeding after the surgery.

My doctor shrugged off the incident, as there's not much they can do. It was a big setback, though. It was weeks before I felt as good as I had before tearing the stitches.

But I'm OK now (3 months post-op). Don't despair; it's just a cruel reminder to take it easy.

Good luck!
