I pulled my stitches out two weeks after the surgery. (No doctors required) They were driving me INSANE. So I ripped them out. It did not hurt.
I saw my cardiologist last week. I had open heart surgery when I was four years old. They said everything is good but I have to lose weight and be healthier for the next time I see them. OHHH and in three years I get another heard MRI ....Woooohoooooo -____-
