stitch concerns
I had a total hyterectomy in 2003 and just discovered a stitch in my vaginal cuff.  Wondering after all this time what is involved in having it removed.  I'm concerned this could be very painful to remove. I had this surgery done in another state and my surgeon moved and did not have access to my records to know if dissolvable stitches were used.  Has anyone experienced this?

They normally use stitches that dissolve. They may not have though. I would think it would be pretty simple to have it removed. Only your Gynecologist can tell for sure though.
