Is it common for a wound that hasn't been too painful, to become agony after stitches are removed?

could just be from the tugging....keep an eye on it as generally no it shouldnt hurt more now than when it was done. fluffy is right - is it any of the above? if so could be infected. if its no better in a day or so id see gp.

Is it red around the site or where the stitches have been? By this I mean the spots where the stitches have been will be small, red ones, is it red like a bruise red with the hole in the middle?

Ah, it may be a good idea to pop and see the practice nurse tomorrow and get her to clean it and check it, just incase there's a bit of infection there, it's best to nip it in the bud IYKWIM. smile

You are more then welcome. I'm so pleased it's less painful, an infection is a PITA to clear. I'm really happy it was nothing! smile
