Yes please let your PS know what is going on, let him take a look. You can never be too careful. Some women experience "spitting stitches" where your body can not absorb all of the internal stitches and they get pushed out through your incision lines. It can sometimes look like this, although spitting stitches is not uncommon nor is it "bad" you should still be checked out just for peace of mind. Please keep us updated.

Hi Dana, How did you get on with your PS? This looks like its 'breaking down' eg the tissue is inflamed and possibly also infected. You may need antibiotics and a would swab to see which 'germ' (s) is responsible. Hope you are ok?
