OMG yesturday I was cleaning out my bellybuttin and I was taking off the white scabs and I tryed to take the bottom one out and it was a stitch I was pulling on OMG... I told DH look its a stitch, thats what is was all this time. So he went and got these lil Scissors and cut it off but not so good the knot went in the whole. But then I found out he had use those same scissors to remove my puppies dew claws when they were born. I told him OMG your crazy how can you use that one me your freaking crazy he said I clean it. I said with what? He said alcohol. I was so freaking out after he told me that... I still am. I said your crazy. He said Ill be fine, I am going to call my doc up tom and ask him my risk. I am still cleaning it with the stuff the doc gave me that helps kill anything n bacteria. I sure hope for his own good he is right...



*Update*
Went to the doc and he took the one out of my bellybuttin and the other that was hanging out and told me to leave the other ones alone that they are dissolvable stitches and they will dissolve in 8 to 10weeks.
Good thing I didnt mess with them but one. he said it was fine.

I had a stitch left in me as well after my laparascopy in May. I didn't see it till 3 weeks after and luckily, mymom is an NP and she took it out with a stitch removal kit. If the rest of the stitch is left in there it can cause infection wether or not it's clean. It will start to form a pustule around it and be sore, then may come out on it's own, or need to be surgically removed. Ugh. Call your Dr. ASAP just to be sure. Sorry that happened to you.

Aww you poor thing. That would have stressed me out too! I'm sure you'll be fine but it's definitely a good idea to call the doc and make sure they see it. Big hug! xx
