A week after stitches were removed on surgery to index finger, the general area of the wound is now very slowly oozing yellow-ish fluid. Is it ok?
Hmmmm...: A sutured wound should heal and should not be draining a yellow discharge. Be sure to have the area looked at by the doctor and get evaluated for a possible infection to be safe. Best wishes. ...Read more
Normal healing!: Wounds take time to heal. Depending on where on the body you were sutured, the stitches will be removed in 1-2 weeks. The oozing is normal. Gently clean the area with peroxide and remove any crusting or dried up ooze that may have formed. Then apply a thin layer of vaseline ointment. No need to keep wound covered at this stage unless it will get dirty. Do this 2-3x day until sutures are removed. ...Read more
Depends, BUT....: Overall health and extent of injury make an enormous difference in healing and recovery. I would say 2 months later might be a bit much. See you doctor! ...Read more

Oozing blood after s:
Where is the wound? And how deep it was?
The clots coming though would indicate that under the skin repair you have a hematoma, as time goes on the clot will undergo further lysis and the hematoma will liquify. You should have a Doppler/ultrasound, obtain the size of the cavity, and if you have a cavity of 4 x 4 in my opinion if the cavity is present, must be re-explored, remove all skin sutur ...Read more

Ok to go: Stitches are only removed when the wound has healed adequately that there is little risk for reopening. The face is a relatively low stress area of skin and you should be fine to workout if the wound looks closed. If you're engaging in aerobic activity within a week of stitch removal, I recommend wearing an absorbent bandage to absorb sweat away from the scar and use plain lotion after shower. ...Read more
I think I have a mucocele, to get it removed does it hurt a lot? And around how long do the stitches last? Will it hurt after their in?
Laser: Hi Kenneth! It's usually a fairly easy surgery. I use a soft tissue laser to remove mucoceles in my office. They usually heal with a few days and usually have very little discomfort after the procedure. I'm sure you would be able to see a dentist with a laser in your area. The procedure should take just a few minutes once you are numb. Best of luck! ...Read more
Techniue & Infection: There can be multiple causes here. Infection can cause even well-sutured wounds to re-open. Wounds closed under tension can also fail; more so if not opposed by deep sutures of the right type or if the tension is just too much. In the latter case additional surgery may be required. ...Read more

If you have scars from stitches, can they be removed? If so, how? And how "perfect" is the removal? Thank you.
Not perfect!: I am going to guess that you mean the "dots" on either side of the main scar or the "crosshatching" that can result from stitches crossing the wound. The best technique would have to be determined by exam, but dermabrasion might help on the face. Excision of the entire area and then closing the wound with sutures under the skin and glue to avoid suture marks altogether might make sense. Good luck! ...Read more

I had my gallbladder removed 3 years ago, is there a possibility that the stitch on the inside has opened after all this time?
Possible; Relevant?: Unlikely. Why? The purpose of sutures=only temporary: hold tissue in close approximation, allow more rapid healing into the goal new organization. After days-to-weeks all the strength is within the tissues, not the sutures. [For a variety of purposes, resorbable sutures are used which dissolve (eaten away by macrophages) within a few weeks to ~3 months.] Afterwards suture=only a foreign object. ...Read more
