How long do you keep stitches in before they need to be removed?
I had a minor surgical procedure performed on my leg. I only have 4 stitches and he only went in about half an inch. My doctor didn't tell me when to come back to get them removed. Office is closed and just wanted to know

When I had knee surgery they took out the stitches 6 days later. When I had stitches on my breast for Breast cancer they took them out in 1 week. For stitches on my thumb they took them out in a week. I would say it all depends if you are healing well.


lynn8953
depends where they are and what procedure was done to cause you to have stitches---usually around a week tho

I had two quite large operations in the last month. I never had the stitches taken out, and have no appointments to have it done. The material being used now ( at least most of the time ) deteorate and fall out all by themselves.
If your doctor didn't give you a date for having the stitches out, you can be sure they're the ones that come out by themselves.

PL .ring the doctor instead of meddling yourself in medical arena.


JuggaletteCharm
around 10 days or less depending on the injury


benz1962
4 to 7 days


ford2312
Five to seven days if they are not disoveable stitches, if they are disolveable they will fall out in a about a week or 2.

Depends entirely on your healing ability, your skin type and other factors, such as the amount of blood clotters in your blood. Ask yourself how long it take you cut to heal the last time you had one. That's about how long to remove stitches. You tell the doc when, not the other way around.
