Patient :Four year old stitch? Hello, My names Cassidy. I had surgery back in 2011 on my abdomen and the stitch the doctor said would fall out didn't. I saw it a few weeks after I had originally got the surgery and they said it would fall out the same as the others did on my sides so I left it alone. I didn't notice it again till a few weeks ago since it is in my belly button I didn't think to check that it was still there but since it was started hurting, especially when touched or if the skin gets damp. Usually I try to avoid going to the doctor unless I really have to but I'm just unsure about this one.
Symptoms: Soreness, Scar tissue is red, seems infected
