Saw GP 2 weeks ago cos I didn't feel that stitches had healed properly and was told that the new tissue had overgranulated. Now I'm waiting for an outpatient gynae appointment to have it removed as its really painful. Apparently they use nitrite??? Has anyone had that done? Is it really painful? I want it removed but I'm quite worried now.

Hi. Am a gp. I do this myself in surgery but i guess not all gps are experienced using it or your gp might want second opinion from gynae. Not a big deal procedure wise. V quick.. Silver nitrate is on a little stick like a long cotton bud. Dr holds it against the granulation tissue. Some people don't feel it some say it stings. Encourages the wound to heal with normal layer of skin over it. Isn't an operation with any cutting.
Hope that helps...saw you didn't have replies.
