Had lap on 5/6/14 and had trouble with my wounds healing/stitches dissolving. Was prescribed antibiotics for belly button infection last tuesday but it is still really sore with a hard lump behind it. I'm due to go on holiday on Friday and am really worried it is going to get worse while I am there. The nurse at my GP surgery said to try and pull/snip out any stitches that I can see and I have tried but it's really hard and painful. Anyone any advice please?
