Hi Helen

A few of my stiches did that, they often pulled a bit for a day or so and then it eased off (the nurse said the skin kind of sticks to the stitch so it feels like it pulls as its growing out). I was too chicken to cut mine off in case i cut the skin so i left it. If you are concerned either call the hospital or visit your gps surgery I saw the gp nurse and she said she could cut it or leave it, we ended up leaving it and it fell off after a while…it felt like ages before it fell off but it was probably only a few weeks.
