how long before the stitches dissolve

I am almost 6 weeks post op. I had one stitch in my belly button that finally fell out last week. I've never seen an internal stitch fall out, I've never had any discharge except a tiny bit the first 36 hours. I had an internal exam on this past Thursday, and the doctor said I was 100% healed inside. So you may not have any outward sign at all. He said I was cleared to do ANYTHING without restriction except not to do actual abdominal crunches. He said I could exercise abdomen with leg lifts, just not bending straight over at the waist for exercise.
