Re: Need Help Desperately!!!!
After my surgery I was in this huge surgical bandage for a week, then got it changed to a cast. I was supposed to have that cast on for two weeks, then get the stitches out and a new cast. After one week the swelling had gone down a lot and with the extra room the stitches were rubbing on the inside of the cast. I called the doc and they said it was normal, but it still really bothered me. So I called again and they brought me in two weeks after surgery to take off the cast and check the stitches. The doctor decided that they were healed up enough to take them out after two weeks instead of three, which was a good thing because I healed quickly and it kind of hurt! But anyway, I felt much better in the new cast when it wasn't bothering my stitches.
So it is probably just normal, but if it really bothers you, get them to do something about it. Good luck.
