Adverse Reaction to Internal Sutures--Anyone Else?

Hi all,

I just had my 6 week check up but I called the doctor the day before because I felt a pinch and then checked my incision and noticed that one had opened up and was discolored. Not bleeding but that first night(sunday night and my dr was on vacation).

I put a heating pad & took motrin overnight then called office in the a.m. spoke with nurse who we agreed to wait to the next day which is my appointment anyway. To my surprise the dr told me that I seemed to have a reaction on all my incisions. Said it was an adverse reaction to the suture material. He determined that by slight darker coloring at each and they all have a little bit of a hard straight line directly under each one. ( I have 5 incisions due to DaVinci surgery) Super happy that my cervix was cauterized vs stitches or I'd have the same issue there. My first sign was that pinch and swelling, which lead to in 24 more hours to oozing yellow pus. The doctor felt around it then told me he would squeeze it to see how much he could get out to help with pain around the area. So for now he is keeping me out of work for an additional week to see how I progress with the meds and hot compresses. I am glad because when I got up today I felt flu-like symptoms ( sweaty achy all over and the incision is super sore where he squeezed) So today I plan on staying in & take it easy reminds me of week 1 &2.
