Day 5, No Major issues, Scattered incidents of slight bleeding seeping out of cut lines, the suture excess (2 threads) became soggy, and became a single soggy bit of suture, No Open holes leading to the sockets (all ways possible weak spots seem to be sealed very well), Left suture seems to be coming out with no evidence of bleeding.

Is it normal for the sutures to be threaded back out then completely fall or what?
Is it common to be in the last stage of healing in less than a week of the surgery?
And, Was I needing to worry about the microscopic and easy to stop blood seepeges?

(Thread Fell out at 4:16 Pm today No bleeding of any type followed)

Wow.
Great to know it wasn't leading to Dry Socket(I Bypassed Alveolar Osteitis period with no trouble)

Also Thank You for editing my post, I have a hard time not being detailed when I talk about medical issues that's Asperger's Syndrome for you.
