Has anyone had the BIG stitch finally popped? I can't wait until mine does. How long is the average wait?

What big stitch are you talking about?

Well, the bigger scan (where the stomach was pulled through) has this dent that's stitched to inside layers and it's supposed to pop on it's own after a certain amount if time...

I have never heard of this. I had my incision above my belly button come open 2wks ago, which is common but never heard anything about the big incision.

Oh so that's why one of my incisions is sort of tucked in.... I asked do about that spot cuz it's hard underneath the surface and she told me that it's because there is a stitch there. But no mention of it "popping". Hope it don't hurt lol. Thanks for the info

I've been wondering why my stomach has a dent there. All the other incisions feel ok but every time I bend over that one incision hurts! Feels like its opening

Well yes, the stitch dissolves but when it does that tension there releases so it feels like a pop. It can happen when you stretch or sneeze or if you're sleep you prob won't feel it but you'll know cus that "dent" will be gone and it would feel so much better.

I was told it would happens around 2 after surgery. I'm almost there so I can't wait.

Mine happened about 2 1/2 weeks out. Then I started getting these stabbing pains in that area every time I bent over or twisted wrong, but the sharp pains went away in about 3 days.

My big stitch was actually stapled shut. Had the staples removed after a week, and then the incision split open and became infected. :\ All of my other incisions have had allergic reactions to the skin glue and bandage adhesive. It's not pleasant. :(

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
