Pain In The Stitches After The Bandages Have Not Been Replaced?

Good afternoon,. I had surgery about a month ago. Two weeks ago, I exercised control at my doctor. My doctor opened my stitches a little and changed the bandages, then told me to do the next control a week later. But I did not exercise further control due to financial problems, so my bandages have not been replaced until now. At this time, I no longer feel any pain or pain in my stitches. With conditions like this, can I open my bandage? And what conditions are suitable for opening the bandage? Thank you in advance, Doctor.

Hello, Iftitah2091, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Bandages serve to protect scars from external dirt, protect stitches from friction, and sometimes to absorb fluid from the stitches. Bandages should not be dirty and wet, so they should be changed every few days (as recommended by your doctor) or every wet / dirty to prevent new infections. If all the stitches have not been removed, the scar should remain covered with a bandage to prevent outside dirt. You should check with your doctor to see the condition of the stitches (whether it has closed properly, the discharge coming out, any signs of inflammation, signs of infection, etc.) so that you get the treatment that suits your current condition.

Here is a HealthReplies.com article about stitching wound care, you can read to add information.

That's all, hopefully it's useful.

Regards.
