Now that all the steristrips are off and the scabs are falling off, I have noticed I have the end of a suture sticking out of my skin by my belly button. I had a full incision from breastbone to navel and four smaller horizontal incisions. I seemy surgeon in another week. Will this keep until then? Do I need to worry?
Hi, I had a few of these. I'm sure a few "popped out" some time after the operation too.
They're absolutely nothing to worry about
. I made a mental note to ask my doctor or surgeon, then I forgot about
them, then several weeks later I realised they had fallen off or disappeared.
All the best,
