I went for my last physio appointment today. During my deep tissue massage the physio noticed that on my lower scar, it looked like there was still some stitch embedded in the healed skin.
I had assumed it was just a stubborn scab which had not healed, and I had managed to resist the picking of, but guess not.
She sent me down to see the nurses, and sure enough, it was a small amount of thread still embedded in the skin. A quick prod with some tweezers and it twanged straight out. At least I got a new plaster 🙂
