When I had my gallbladder removed over 2 years ago I always had this little bump near one of the incision sites. I never really thought much of it until a couple of days ago when it started to swell, turn red and hurt. Really hurt.
It was so weird and I thought I was completely crazy because I thought it was related to my previous gallbladder surgery but how could that be when it had been 2 years since I had the surgery?
I found out today. I finally went to the doctor and if you know me at all you know I would rather do many, many, many things than go to the doctor. I had also been suffering from sinus symptoms for about 3 weeks so it was a good opportunity to kill 2 birds with one stone.
Mom decides to go to the doctor with me and we find out I am "spitting a stitch". Yes, it seems there is a very deep stitch that wasn't one that dissolved so now has decided to work its way out through my skin. How fun for me.
I also have sinus infection. I decided to stay home today and tomorrow which I think will help me to feel better.
With antibiotic in hand we left the doctors office with instructions to put a warm compress on my spitting stitch.
Whoever heard of such a thing? I swear it could only happen to me.
