torn internal stitch
i had an open radical prostatectomy one month ago. from day two in the hospital i've had recurring  pain in a dime sized area two inches to the left and three  inches down from the top of the sutures. one week ago i did chores around the house and at the end of the day the pain increased dramatically and has remained constant. i am not able to stand or walk without a very sharp, burning stabbing pain in the area described.  the nurse for my surgeon says i may have pulled a stitch and there is nothing to be done. pain shows has quality of not improving or changing. sitting, reclining and lying down ease the pain. applying firm pressure to the area also helps when i am standing. had urinalysis ten days ago after severe lower left back pain, which showed no infection.  please advise.
