Permanent suture in vagina after prolapse surgery
Suture exposure treated with simple removal
If there is no infection then I don't thing there is much to worry about.Most likely this was a permanent suture that became exposed with time. Simple removal is all that is necessary. Although anything is possible it would be very unlikely that this is the cause of your pain.
