My DH had oral surgery last Wednesday where they uplifted his sinuses and built up his upper jaw bone by inserting a cow bone. He has a row of stitches on the side of his jaw inside his cheek and a few on his gum where a tooth was.
Yesterday as he was eating some soup (he's on a liquid and pureed diet) a stitch came out. There was no blood and I told him to call his doctor Monday (today).
He woke me up this morning and told me 2 more stitches came out as he was using the prescription mouth rinse the doctor gave him. Again, no blood, and he will be calling his doctor first thing this morning.
Do you think this is normal or could there be something wrong?
