I'm healing well from my accident nearly a month ago. I can walk easily and stay on my feet for hours. I can almost take stairs without a hand rail. All signs are that I'm going to make a full recovery.
That was until a few days ago. This passed Thursday I began to feel a tingle under part of the wound that has nearly healed over. On Friday it had progressed to burning and most of Saturday I was gritting my teeth over it. Cuts and scratches routinely itch or throb or feel uncomfortable in any of a dozen ways as they heal. Initially, I thought that was the case. Today, though, I noticed that one of the tiny little scabs over where they had threaded my stitches was hanging loose, clinging to a hair, I thought. I tugged on it and out slides a piece of surgical stitching.
They had left three quarters of an inch of surgical suture filament in my friggin knee!
The spot isn't red and hasn't drained any fluid so it's not infected, just freaky.
What the hell?
