Hi everyone !! So I finally did it , I got my full mouth extraction last Thursday . It was not as bad as I had feared . Now my issue is ...the stitches !! The surgeon used dissolvable stitches in my entire mouth , top and bottom . Now they are starting to poke out and feel like wires and the ones all the way in the back feel "gummy and very stretchy " so I think they are starting to dissolve . My issue is I cant stand that feeling way in the back , I feel like Im swallowing them and they are stuck in my throat . I laid down last night had had to throw up . Anyone have experience with dissolvable stitches ?? When the hell will they go away ?? Thanks everyone

Great to hear that it wasn't as bad as you had feared 🙂! Dissolvable stitches are one of @Gordon 's pet hates:



Maybe you could ask the surgeon to remove them if they're annoying you?
