Does anyone know how many stitches are in the vaginal cuff and when they come out?

I can tell you what my GYN told me when I asked that question. "think of a sock, if you cut the end of the sock out, how many stitches do you think will be needed to sew it back in order to wear it again" I said "OMG", he said, "yes, that many". Hope this was helpful.

I don't know but I'm going to ask when I have my 6 week (dr wasn't there for the 2 week). How long should we expect it to take - by 6 weeks or after? I hope before.

Everyone is different. at my 6 and 8 week visit I still had my stitches. I was cleared at 10 weeks. I guess I am a slow healer. Hope yours is faster. Good luck.

My doctor used the same analogy as kimling. I believe my stitches just dissolved for he never took them out. I never noticed them.

Good luck in your recovery.....make sure you give yourself plenty of time for your body to completely heal.

Depending on how your Dr. did you surgery there are more then vaginal cuff stitches. You will have stitches in other areas also. I was told by my Dr. after I asked him that I have over a 100 stitches internally.
