C-section mamas (or Carolyn--I think you work in surgery?) I have a weird question:
I took the mesh tape off of my incision today (w/Dr.'s approval, as it wasn't coming off on its own) and there was a suture coming out of my skin (about 1/2" in length) at the end of my incision. I called L&D since my dr's office was already closed and they spoke to my dr. and said it was ok to snip it off close to the skin. Well, by the time I got around to doing it, it had worked its way back into my skin, so there is nothing to cut off. This has freaked me right out. I called L&D back and the super nice nurse who I talked to the first time said this is perfectly ok, the suture will dissolve in 6-9 months. I am still a little paranoid about it though. Will it cause an infection, or puncture something in there? I should just stop worrying about it I guess.
