Well, we have made two trips to the surgeon's office to have his incision checked in the last week 50 minute drive each way) just to have them tell us there is nothing to be concerned about
. Yesterday my son notice something black just under the scar and it started oozing from a different point on the incision. The black spot turned out to be a long black knotted stitched that he was able to pull out almost all the way, however, it is stuck on something and will not come out. I have sent a picture of it to the surgical nurse. I didnt think that the dissolvable stitches were black. He had another stitch come out and it was clear nylon type stitch. Not a thick black one. We will probably make yet another trip to the Cleveland clinic to get it checked out again
