Few weeks ago, my dad has succesfully underwent an operation at my hospital. So he got few stiches on the lips & on the cheek. A week post-operation, he was advised to go to the nearest klinik kesihatan for suture removal. So off he went. They removed the suture on my dad's skin except on the lips. This is because, the suture on his lips is the absorbable type. In which, it will be 'absorbed' into the tissue after a period of time.
However, for the past few days, my dad complained to me that he feel uncomfortable with the suture. Since the suture is located in the innerlips, somehow when he is eating, he constantly feel this foreign body sensation. I immediately whatsapp the surgeon who operated my dad and he adviced me to 'trim' the suture.
I just love PPUKM you see. Rileks je boleh whatsapp2 boss hehe :)
GOOGLE IMAGE. Sorry for the picture. Im trying to get you guys to visualize the suture on my dad's lips hehe. Well the suture looks something similar like this. Only my dad's one is longer and smaller. Nampak tak suture yang terkeluar-keluar tu? Itulah yang my dad dok complain tuuuuu!
My dad is a rock star. haha. I love you ayah.
