The Last Suture (hopefully)

Today I noticed that one of my incisions had a bluish hue to it and thought, "Hey, my stitches were blue!" So I decided to numb it up with an ice cube and then I put a pin into one side of the incision and pulled out about 1.5 cm of blue, nylon suture material! 5 weeks after the surgery I shouldn't be pulling out suture material. I will definitely have my surgeon take a good look at all of the incisions to make sure that there is not any more underneath the skin. I wouldn't be surprised if one incision still has some in it since it is very hard under the skin; although I suppose this could be scar tissue.
