- Where do i get stitches removed?
Or do what my GF did, visit the practice nurse to get it done, who then left one in her foot which had gotten infected & meant the swelling took a couple more months to come down & possibly hindered her chance of a full recovery due to internal scarring. maybe. grrrr!Posted 8 years agoavdave2Member
Not always that easy to get out as I discovered when the nurse had to remove mine after the snip, they had failed to dissolve. If they had been anywhere else I'd have probably done it myself but I had this image in my head of everything coming undone and my testicles rolling away and getting lost under the sofa.Posted 8 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I DIY'd the ones in my hand, was easy enough. But, the other advantage of having the pros do it is that they'll also be able to assess how it's healing, if there's any infection or drawing of the scar, etc etc. When I got the ones in my hip removed they noticed a slight inflamation which turned out to be an infection just taking hold, and they were able to act and stop it immediately which potentially stopped a lot of complications.Posted 8 years ago
