My body has never tolerated Dissolving Stitches, they don't dissolve & have to be cut out. I still have mine from a hernia repair 4 years ago! I'm nervous about my stitches not dissolving after my upcoming BA. The stitches I received after delivering my 2nd son had to be removed because they were odor producing. I'm afraid of infection! Should I be concerned about my stitches not dissolving and how should I express my concern to my doctor? His nurse didn't seem to understand or believe me.

I think more specifics need to be discussed in person regarding your past surgeries. Good luck and talk to your doctor.
