Always a Foreign Body
Hello,It is likely a deep permanent suture at your muscle wall that is contaminated with bacteria and needs to be removed. This requires good lighting, good surgical equipment, an assistant, methylene blue to track the sinus track to the source, and local anesthesia. Hopefully your surgeon is up to the task. Best of luck!
