Yes back to nurse. This happened to me recently, there are two threads on here, both with lovely pictures. In the end I was swabbed, given a second round of antibiotics and a stitch came out of the hole. Not nice but the hole is now healing nicely. Good luck,
In the end I pulled it and it snapped off in my hands with the remainder left in me. I believe it's a dissolvable stitch as it is healing up now and looks much less inflamed but I'm seeing consultant for my follow up this Thursday so looking forward to being reassured I hope. I had two lots of stitches and the external ones I had removed at 2 weeks.
I also didn't have a temperature, similar to yours. Unitially I saw a spec in my wound as well and.thr nurse didn't want to go digging around for it but eventually my body ejected it, well the bit I pulled off. Keep a close eye on it and go back to get it checked if you're worried as these things can take a turn for the worst.
Hi there check up was great thanks. He said the stitch was dissolvable but sometimes the knots make their way out before that happens. Im so glad you are on the mend now, good luck with the rest of your recovery
