When was your laporoscopy? I would be tempted to go doctors myself. I cant recall having that after i had mine. Are your other stitches ok?

2 weeks ago. Some stitches still not dissolved either. Not painful just yucky in morning and smelly

I would deffinitely go doctors. I think my stitches were about gone by then but it was5/6 years ago i had mine.

If it is smelly and gungy you need to go to your GP. He will hopefully (or she) take a swab and maybe give you some antibiotics.

I had this, when I had one a few years ago. It was a stitch that hadn't dissolved properly and had gone yukky. Go and see the doc. or probably better the practice nurse - they'll probably pull it out for you so it can heal.
