BIT WORRIED ABOUT MY STITCHES 16 DAYS POST CIRCUMCISION.

Bit worried about my dissolvable stitched I'm now on day 16 and they don't seem to be budging. I think one or two have dissolved but most are still really visible and I can't see how they are gonna dissolve. The thought of having to have them removed makes me shit myself. 😂 Granted I realise I'm being a baby but just wanted to no what happened with other people's stitches when did there start dissolving what do they look like etc. Thanks.

Thank you ! Have a nice day :)

After about 10 days my stitches started to dissolve but I think it would have taken a lot more time before they would completely have dissolved if the doctor did not have them removed after two weeks by the follow up. He told me if they don't get removed you will get ugly stitch tunnels. And after two weeks, they have done their job. I advise you to let getting them removed.

My started falling on the 5th day and as i was cleaning the would i had to see pus from the stitch wound and i started removing them one by one as the wound heals. I used scircorrs to cut and a needle to remove the lash then pull. Iam now healed its my 4th week but not yet fully healed
