I recently had athroscopic knee surgery. A couple of stitches needed removing, which was scheduled for 10 days after the surgery. I attended the local health centre to have this done by the nurse. Today, 2 weeks later, I have just removed 2-3 cm of stitch from one of the wounds. I had thought it was dried blood, but when trying to get rid of the few millimetres in view, I pulled a loop out, which kept coming. No idea if this would have caused a problem going forward, but not impressed at all.
