    My stitches r still pretty tender and I have noticed from my back exit it looks like yellow discharge. It doesn't smell or anything and doesn't hurt more than usual does this sound normal? I am paranoid about stitches getting infected! I have 2 baths a day and use baby wipes to wipe myself lol

    Dont know about discharge hun, maybe see a doctor? I used to pour water every time I went to the loo (with a drop of tea tree oil), really helped to heal

    I hope everything is ok with them. I was in pain with my stitches for a couple of weeks. I used to use a spray bottle every time I went to the toilet and I always patted myself dry, never wiped out of fear of irritating the area.
