Dr. Herman Hammerstead answered

Specializes in Trauma Surgery

Should dissolve: In my hemorrhoid patients I used sutures that dissolve in 30-40 days and didn't need to be removed. Removing rectal stitches is like chasing a wild cat around the room, a experience both the patient and I did not want to experience. Ask your surgeon to confirm.
