Has anyone ever had stitches that reopened right after they were taken out?   I just had mine taken out on my back ( mole extraction ) and had to be restitched again.

Oh no! I've only had stcitches once and I didn't have any issues with them, I hope everything heals well this time around!

Thanks. Hope it does too. I've had stitches before too and no problems. They're in for 2 weeks now .

i had a c section for all of my pregnancies and my last one I had complications with the stitches and had to have some removed and reapplied only to be removed again 4 days later. Permanently. I was scared, it is crazy though how fast the body heals itself.

I've only had staples (for a c section) - which arent so easy to fall out, but a lot harder to remove!!

Glad to know they healed finally. Not fun!

Don't think I'd like to have staples by the sound of it.

That sucks! How long did you leave the stitches in the first time before they were taken out...was it just too soon?

I had a mole removal on my back also and my hubby took my stitches out for me ten days issues! It was only 4 stitches though.

Had them removed on the 8th day. Had 3 stitches then. Have the same amount this time as well.

Least I'm getting used to sleeping better on my back now. What a pain the first few days.

Never had stitches before! Wishing you speedy healing!
