So my son is a month & two days now. I had him v-back and they had to cut me to get him the rest of the way out...then they sewed me back up. They said my stitches would take 1 week to heal and that they would just dissolve. Well, with me doing some heavy lifting I honestly think I tore. I can feel like a little piece of string down there and I was just wondering why in the hell would they tell me a week if I can clearly tell Im not healed all the way?? I honestly have no idea what Im going to do. Are they going to be able to sew me back up if need be?

The episiotomy should be basically healed by one week, but the sutures take much longer than that to dissolve. They usually take several weeks and the knots can take even longer. If there is a piece bothering you, they should be able to just clip it short enough that it doesn't.
