I had undergone a Gall bladder removal surgery last 7 days back. There is no pain right now. They have put 4 holes. They said Stitches ll automatically fall down within 2 weeks. But am facing an issue past 2 days. When I sleep in the night and while getting up in the morning I could notice some blood discharge near the naval where the stitches have put. Is anything to worry? When we asked doctor he said nothing to worry. Am concerned about it.

Nothing to worry. Better get stitches removed.
Hello dear Lybrate user, Warm welcome to I have evaluated your query thoroughly. Possible infection at the site, otherwise there should not be bleeding at 7 days. Must visit surgeon, it requires dressing and antibiotics to cover up. Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.
