Patient

Q: I had an ileostomy procedure 4.5 years ago and a reverse ileostomy 3.5 years ago. Today I was having a normal bowel movement when a suture started coming out of my rectum. I went to the ER and they didn't want to remove it so they just cut it flush with my rectum. I'm not in pain and don't have any blood in my stool but don't like the idea of an exposed suture in my rectum. What can i do about this. The ER told me to schedule an appointment with my regular GI
