TMI but I need help

I delivered my son about 3 and a half weeks ago. My OB had to cut me to get him out. Well she put a bunch of stitches in down there and i've been in pain all day. So I had my husband look and it says that the stitches are gone and theres a hole there. It really hurts. I'm gonna call my OB in the morning but is this normal? Should I have healed before my stitches got absorbed?

I would probably keep a good eye on it,and if it starts bleeding or what not goto the ER, make sure you Tell your OB you need to get in TODAY when you call her that its an emergency.

I had to have an episiotomy and there was no hole.. anywhere..  I was in pain for a few weeks form the whole delivery and heeling but mostly swelling.

I agree with this ^^^

That doesnt sound normal. You probably need to go in to get restiched again. They missed something. You probably wont die from it, but you wont heal right either. You also might have issues in the future with it snagging or something. Cringe, thinking about the snag lol.

Episiotomy stitches usually dissolve in 10-14 days. However, if you are having discomfort, bleeding, or feel like the perineal area is open at the site of the episiotomy, you should call your doctor to see if they want you to come in.
