How To Deal With Suture Wounds That Bleed?
, I had an accident three weeks ago that made my urinary spot torn and had to be sewn, yesterday the wound had started to dry and some of the thread had started to come off, but now it is bleeding again, and I don’t know whether the blood came from the wound or not, because remembering that part of my genitals collided, what should I do to stop the blood? thank you
Hello Siti, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
In general, stitches will dry out within 1-2 weeks if certain complications do not occur. If it has been 3 weeks since your wound was sewn and the stitches have started to dry, there are no specific complications for the stitches (such as infection or loose stitches) most likely the bleeding does not originate from the suture wound.
It is better if you differentiate first, does the blood come out when you are alone or at any time? Does blood come out when you poop? Is it time for you to experience menstruation? Are there other symptoms that you feel (for example, pain and swelling in the area of stitches, fever, pain when you chin, pain when you defecate, a lump in the anus, or other symptoms).
If indeed you feel pain in the area of the suture wound, the area of the suture is swollen, then there may be certain disorders in the wound that cause the wound to heal more slowly. If you experience certain disorders when you urinate, such as urinary pain, feeling of excitement, etc., then the possibility of blood coming from the urethra. If you feel a lump in the anus, pain during bowel movements, you often straining hard during bowel movements, then the possibility of blood coming from your anus / lower gastrointestinal tract. In these conditions, you should immediately check with your doctor again.
If indeed it is time for you to experience menstruation, then there is nothing you need to worry about. The blood stops on its own after the menstrual period is over.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
