White string?

Ok, so I had a hysterectomy on March 24th. They cut me in 4 different spots. My bandages fell off like normal a week or so ago. I saw what looked like a scab on one. Well now that it's been washed from the shower, IT'S A WHITE STRING! its where they tied me off when they sewed me up! How are they going to fix this ? Ugh! I have a white string sticking out of me!

Anyone else have this happen before ? Anyone have any idea how they are going to fix this? I'm calling my GYN tomorrow morning. This needs fixed NOW! Don't you think ??

  • i had stitched like that with my csections... my youngest had that with her hip surgeries as well...
    talk to the ob, it could be your body pushing out a stitch that isn't dissolving... gross i know, but it will eventually go away.

  • If it's the stitches and it's inside of you. Don't worry, they will dissolve.
