Stitches - Happy Thursday
« on: July 02, 2020, 06:20:41 am »
I spent yesterday in Hospital having a minor procedure done that required stitches in the back of the neck.

Anyhow, getting to the point this morning I needed to cough and had forgotten about the stitches, so I coughed and nearly pissed myself  ;D

Hope everyone is having a good week.

i feel for you. a few years ago i had a small cyst taken from the middle of my back and was left with 2 stitches. The next morning while brushing my teeth I coughed just a little and ripped those stitches right out. OW! I returned to the doctor and got 5 stitches to repair the new wound.

take care and best wishes for some quick healing!

I hope you get well fast 😁.
 I remember as a kid when I removed my tonsils as a kid and drunk something and forgot I couldn't swallow,so it went out my nose 😂.

Thanks, ill be fine. Onto the itching stage and feeling less sore already.
Yeah ripping/pulling the stitches out would hurt, thankfully it was not that bad when I coughed.

I hope you get well fast 😁.

Fluids in the nose is one of the most bizarre unpleasant sensation ever.
Anyhow, thanks and I'm fine. This recent process is the end of a long nightmare for me, so things are looking up  ;)
