Stitches falling out.

I had a TVH on Aug 2 so I'm only 3 weeks post op. I have been working around the house packing because we are moving next week but I HAVE NOT done any heavy lifting. I have been noticing excess discharge that is yellow-brownish. Tonight is noticed 2 long stitches when I went to the bathroom. Has anyone else noticed long stitches falling out? Should I be concerned, I have been hurting a little bit.

Re: Stitches falling out.

I don't honestly know but from what I've read for TVH 3 weeks would be maybe a little early for that. Are you sure it is stitches and not stringy discharge?

I would say you need to err on the side of caution and get someone else to do the rest of the packing. Put your feet up, rest. Bending and continual movement (both a big part of packing house) are not going to be good for you. Please don't retard your recovery.

I'm sure other ladies have more experienced advice to offer, I mainly wanted to post to ask you to take it easy.

Re: Stitches falling out.

I'm positive it was actual stitiches. They were 2 strings about 1/2 in long. I am trying to take it easy. I work a little, then rest a little. If I let everyone one else do the work, then things will get misplaced or thrown away that I don't want to.

Re: Stitches falling out.

Then you need to stay at the center of things, in a comfy chair and preferably with your feet up, and co-ordinate.

Your recovery is more important than anything. You may just have to trust the other people to do a good job.

I know I'm nagging - it's because I'm concerned and think you need to hear it. Rest up, if you are hurting you are doing too much.

Re: Stitches falling out.

I had a vaginal hysterectomy Aug. 4. At my three week check-up my doctor told me not to be surprised to see stitches in the toilet. She also told me no lifting for three more weeks, but I could start exercising a little as it would not pop the stitches. Just listen to your body! You can do a little, just don't over-do it!
