How long will it take for the stitched wound to heal
Patient : I had a large birthmark (4,5cm by 1,5cm) removed from my back. It was cut out and then stitched up (no grafting) exactly 3 weeks ago. The wound must be about 8 or 9cm in length. See the attached image. Could you tell how long more it will take to heal and to cover up with skin? It still hurts when I bend etc. Thanks
