Hello aderisti, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
The wound that has just been sutured will be painful after the effects of the local anesthetic given during the suturing wear off. This pain can last from a few days to a few weeks depending on the location, the depth of the wound, and the presence or absence of infection, but in general, the pain will begin to subside after 2-3 days. After the suturing of the wound, you will usually be prescribed a strong enough painkiller by your doctor. If you are not prescribed painkillers, you can try taking over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen. Ibuprofen has been shown to be quite effective in treating mild to moderate pain. If indeed these drugs can not cope with the pain of your stitches, you can check back to the doctor who treats you to get stronger painkillers.
Watch for the following signs, if there are these signs, immediately return to the doctor:
The wound looks red, swollen, and feels hot
the wound is getting worse or the pain doesn't go away after 3 days
there is pus or there is an unpleasant odor from the wound
there is a fever
That's all the information I can give, hopefully it's enough to answer
