Hi, I was just wondering if there is anybody that could give me some advice. I am new to this, this is my first post but I have been following the page for quite a while now. I had my first diagnostic laparoscopy 5 weeks ago and was treated for stage 2 endometriosis. I have 3 incisions, one through my belly button and one on either side near my ovaries.
I was told my stitches were dissolvable stitches, however over 5 weeks later the stitches are still there and don’t seem to be going anywhere. My incisions are so red and I keep getting pains around the areas where the incisions are. They are not oozing and there doesn’t seem to be any smells coming from the incisions, however, I am just a little bit worried at how red they look still and they don’t seem to be healing very well. Today I have started to feel quite unwell in myself, fever, feeling sick and weak. Should I be worried? How likely is it for me to have an infection after 5 weeks and does it sound like something I need to get checked out ASAP as I would have to wait until tomorow to get an emergency appointment with the doctor? Sorry for the long post. Thanks for listening Xxx
