Undissolved stitches 4 months after surgery

Hello, I'm new to this site. This week I discovered stitches and a knot at the top of the inside of my vagina that were not dissolved. I called my surgeon and she said to use premarin vaginal cream for a month and call her if they are still there. I will try that but in the meantime, I have an infection that I want to take care of first. My surgery was 3/31/09. In May I had stitches coming out of the area that was cut between my vagina and rectum (don't remember that name). It was very painful to sit so I didn't. I called the doctor and she said I should come into the office and she would cut them out. The pain was excruciating and it took quite a while for her to finish. No pain medicine was given to me for this procedure. However, after that healed I felt much better. Naturally, I am reticent to have the stitches and knot in my vagina done in the office with no meds. If the premarin cream doesn't work, I will insist on anesthetic!

Hi (((imatrump)))



I am so glad that you have decided to join us! I remember being a bit surprised at about 14 weeks post op when some stitching material came out while I was showering. It was the first time since my surgery that I had even seen any stitches come out. It can be a gradual process. I hope that the cream does the trick for you.
Please keep us posted if you can. Take care!
