Thanks everyone for the info!! Just wanted to give an update. Got the stitches taken out two days ago.. doc said everything looks fine. Getting those stitches out was very painful, I actually cried and I never do! Anyway.. the pain is practically nothing now that the stitches are out. I'm feeling much better! The only thing that hurts now is where the Drain tube was; still very sore and swollen. Thanks again!!
