Hello everyone! I am so glad to come across this forum and I've found a lot of useful information.

I had a mucocele removal surgery 3 days ago, and I got 3 dissolvable stitches. The surgery was very quick and painless, and I was told by the surgeon that I could basically eat everything I want, but still I've been avoiding all the solid food and had yogurt and soft food most of the time.

I noticed that one of the stitches fell out yesterday, and I can tell that another one is going to fall out very soon. Is it normal for stitches to come out so soon? I haven't felt much pain or discomfort in the surgery area, but I am somehow concerned about the recovery. Should I be worried? And can anyone tell me how long your recovery take, and how long did your stitches come out?

Thank you so much, and I wish everyone health and happiness!
