hello and thank you
Where did the doctor use the undissolvable stitches, inside or on skin?
Are you sure? Did he tell you he did this?
yes, i am sure. he did 3 surgeries and I got worse each time and also when he pulled the drain tube, he made a blockage and hernia. I had to go to another surgeon to repair the hernia that he did (on the right side). But my problem is now on the left side where I had the partial colectomy and he said that he stitched me real good with undissolvable stitches. The surgeon that repaired the hernia said that i had undisolvable stitches and he had to remove them and put solvable stitches, but he did not check my colectomy stitches.
I see, the next step is to get a CT scan, which will show if the stitches are causing any abscess formation, if not, then the may have to be removed and replaced
Do you think that this stitches are creating inflammation or other problems?
It is possible that they are, but no way to know for sure without testing
Thank you doctor. I will get a ct scan. I appreciate your help.
I'm not sure why he used those stitches in the first place
You're very welcome
I am happy I could help
That is exactly what the last surgeon said.
Have a great day. Thanks !!
Same to you
