I’d not be able to leave it alone! I remember having a bit of a stitch sticking out after the band went in and the stitch was coming from the port area. Me being me (a picker) just had to pull it and it was really long! It felt like I was pulling it out forever but it was only about 2″ long and like undoing a sack of potatoes with that string you get. Not that my hole opened up but it was a really cool experience! So called disolvable stitches never seem to do that with me (having had apronectomy and thigh lift as well) and they do get really sore when they start sticking out and so I’ve always landed up digging them out. Bit macarbe I know but it made the soreness go for me. I’m just weird when it comes to things like that so other people who are a little more normal would be best to go to see their nurse or someone. I found it was more the knots in the stitches that caused me most problems and you wouldn’t believe how many of them came to the surface!
