Re: stitches

Krissy -

I didn't have any stitches removed for my daVinci procedure. They all stayed in until they dissolved which took a few weeks.

The only time I have heard of stitches being removed is with some abdominal procedures.

The Dr. might nip an external stitch, I had one where a tail was poking through my skin. Definitely no removal with internal vaginal stitches.

I hope your Drs appointment goes well.
