Five weeks post surgery, our son has an area on his incision site about 2 inches above his left ear that has always seemed like a weak spot - scab opens up, bleeds, scab reforms, repeat. Today the stitches from that area have "popped" and now there's a little divet of exposed scalp. I have a call into the doctor's office, but was also wondering if this has happened to you and what you did.
The popped stitches are still attached, just kind of hanging there. We have a post-surgical consult in 2 weeks.
Thanks for any input. Otherwise (well, despite some poor sleeping and a little extra fusiness - all manageable, just irritating) recuperation is going well.
Best to all of you!
