Other eye healed beautifully. But this one's scar line is still quite red. Part of suture became visible and was removed last week after I insisted the eye be looked at. Doctor had been dismissing redness until then in spite of radical difference in healing between the two eyes. Now more suture is emerging. Seems to be there in pieces. I'm terribly upset as I have never had any kind of complication. What to do? --58 yr old female in good shape
Update: I went back to my surgeon, and it was indeed, a monocryl suture that was coming out of the upper eyelid. In my case, the body was not dissolving the suture very well on this one side. He made a small incision and removed as much of it as he could. It was fragmented and coming out in several areas. What is left is a small bit and should not present a problem. Thank you all for your feedback. The lesson learned is that while one can make a general rule about surgery, every patient is different. Why this one eye was a problem and the other not is a mystery!
