Stitches are gone!

At 5pm, Dr. Lee’s young assistant arrived, and whipped out the stitches.  I thought he was just cutting them, and was going to go back and drag them out.  But he said “All done”, and the stitches were there in a pile. No pain at all! I did not count them, I shall wait until later for that.

He said that I will need to keep the dressing on them for 3 days, and if the drain hole dressing gets too wet, then that should be changed.  I am not sure if it has made any difference to my movement, but I zimmered to the toilet in celebration anyway.

    Thank goodness the stitches are out and there weren’t any “issues”! Sounds like you’ve healed well if you didn’t feel anything …. sure Mum has some stories about stitches coming out and infections and things!!

    Hope you don’t have to wait too long to have your photo taken tomorrow – just that bit of red tape to get out the way and then you’re virtually home! M40 has been closed this morning so maybe all the delays will be out of the way for a smooth transition to Cape Road, Warwick!
