Drug reaction? Too many facts missing from the story, but myalgias ( muscle pains) are caused by many medications including beta blockers like atenolol, benzodiazepines like Klonopin (clonazepam) and even fish oils.

Had skin biopsy on benign mole. Doc is on vacation and won't remove 8 stitches until he returns 19 days after biopsy? Safe to wait to remove stitches?

It's safe. The stitches may become very annoying but it is safe to wait. If you don't want to wait you could go to an urgent care at 10 days and have them removed. Read more...
Yes it's safe. Your doctor is aware of where he placed the stitches. How long they stay in depends. On the face usually 5-7 days is the max. Elsewhere on the body where the skin is thicker and low chances of scarring stitches can be left longer. If you are having signs of infection-streaking lines from the site, warm to touch, red, and/or drainage that is not clear or straw colored have them taken out. Read more...

I had a skin biopsy on a benign mole. Doc is on vacation and won't remove the 8 stitches until he returns 19 days after biopsy? Is it safe to wait?

Not to Worry. If the Doctor had felt that the mole was at all "suspicious" he/she would have made arrangements to contact you earlier. Benign moles are often removed for "prevention" not for actual treatment. Not to worry! Read more...

Depending on location of surgery and incision, your PCP or your local Plastic surgeon can recommend suture removal and post-op care including scar management. Read more...
