I had a robotic hysterectom 4 months ago. They also took out my cervic. I can feel hard threadlike stitches inside of me. I was told that thery were supposed to use desolving stitches. Is this true. I am having pain on my right side also. My husband said that when we are having sex that he can feel the thread and it is hurting him. Is this normal? My doctor is on vacation and won't be back until Oct 3rd and can't see me until Oct 10th. what can I do?? Any suggestion? I need help please. Anyone.
Hello needtoknow00, I can not speak for every surgeon but it is common practice for surgeons to use dissolving suture, especially in sensitive areas like the vaginal cuff. However their are always exceptions, especially if grafts were placed. Unfortunately you must follow up with your surgeon for answers. If it is a suture that has been around for 4 months and causing symptoms perhaps it can be removed in the office.
