I don't think they'll sew you up. I had an
open wound that they left to close on its own as well. They consider them dirty wounds if they are not close during surgery. I was in pain for about
4 months after my surgery. Keep in mind ur healing from the inside out and ur insides also have to learn to take their new place in ur body. I always called and asked for more meds. They would question me but they know I wasn't a druggie..haha. Bottom line is hang in there things will get better just keep ur doctor updated on how ur feeling and ur fevers.
