I’ll admit it – I’ve been worried. My stitches seemed to take a very long time indeed to fall off and I began to wonder if they were the sort that needed to be removed. After six weeks I wasn’t enjoying the thought of someone giving my stitches a pull and watching my right leg decrease in length by a full 6 inches! (Sorry about my over-active imagination!) Luckily the stitches have finally started to fall off – a sure sign that I won’t have to worry about being pulled inside out in my follow up appointment on Tuesday.
Of course I’m still concerned about the appointment but I’m not afraid of physical pain now.
