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. :(

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
