Did anyone tear or have an episiotomy and your stitches never dissolve?

I tore really bad and had a lot of stitches... I am 4 weeks PP and I could still feel the stitches even though they were supposed to dissolve after 2 weeks. I went in to my OB and she said that every stitch was still completely there! Has this happened to anyone else?

  • My stitches never dissolved. They ripped out after about 2 weeks or 3.
