Another decompression post-op stitches

Postby EHF » Tue Feb 23, 2010 3:21 pm

Hi again. Ds had his surgery just over three weeks ago. He's talking about "burning" pain at his incision site. I looked at it and the stitches (which are the kind sutures that dissolve) are much more visible and it almost looks like the incision is pulling apart more than I've ever noticed. I think this is why the stitches are much more obvious. I'm taking him to our pediatrician this afternoon (also b/c of the episodes of double vision, etc.). In the meantime, I was wondering if this sounds familar to anyone or if its just part of normal healing?
