It all depends on where the stitches are. Some places have longer healing times than others, thus resulting in longer time left in for the stitches. I had my ear get cut and needed 8 stitches. I had to leave them in for 2 weeks or so, and have very minimal scarring


me
I HAVE HEARD OF THEM BEING LEFT IN THAT LONG. MAYBE YOU SHOULD CALL YOUR DOCTORS OFFICE AND DOUBLE CHECK. JUST MAKE SURE THE SKIN ISN'T GROWING OVER TOP THE STITCHES, BUT, DON'T MESS WITH IT YOURSELF. YOU LL CAUSE IT TO GET INFECTION.


Shar
Did the doctor say to leave in that length of time or have you not been smart enough to make an appt to have them removed?

Leaving them in that long can cause worse scarring and cause them to become infected. It slows the healing process.

What's the deal in waiting so long? It doesn't hurt to have them out and it's usually included in the price of putting them in so shouldn't cost anything to have them removed.


country_girlz
probably....but you need to go see your doc and get them out soon.

No leaving stitches in for 16 days will be ok The Dr. may have wonted you to have a longer time before taking them out because of possible stress or pulling of the skin in the area. He just did not wont the cut area to come open that is all. You will be fine. Stitches don't hurt coming out. They may be a little stuck but soaking them before removal will help Thar. You will be fine.
