Warning! Severe reactions to Vicryl sutures--months of pain.

Postby eyes2 » Thu Jan 31, 2008 4:26 pm

My doctor is wonderful and carefully monitoring my situation. She is going to contact Johnson and Johnson. Ethicon is an umbrella company of Johnson and Johnson and they manufacture the vicryl stitches. I hope everyone who has problems with the vicryl stitches makes sure that Ethicon and Johnson and Johnson are contacted about this.

reply to vicryl sutures

Postby music453 » Sat Feb 02, 2008 11:52 am

I totally agree about the dangers and ill effects of vicryl sutures, or any that are pemanently imbedded under the skin in any areas of the body. I am such a casualty and I live constantly with pain from these very vicryl sutures that were used over large areas of my scalp.. behind and above my ears.. way up the sides of the head into the temples.. behind my head.
These do indeed try to be expelled by the body's defenses but physically cannot find their way out, so they come close to the surface and create acute and pervasive episodes of pain. The sad part is that the surgeons who leave sutures in a patient's body, have no accountability to the FDA or the Medical Boards, so they go on their merry way sometimes experimenting on patients.. coming up with techniques that they quickly enlist and then discard due to seeing complications, ex post facto. My immune system immediately responded to the sutures, and I was sick for three years...depression then set in.. Bottom line, I started to feel better when I had resigned myself to chronic pain. The pain has indeed gotten worse as the sutures are now felt close to the surface. And now that I am exercising regularly at the gym, the circulation to my head increases the pain. My advice to all is to Be EXTREMELY VIGILANT ABOUT WHAT YOUR SURGEON is planning to DO DURING YOUR SURGERY .. ASK ABOUT THE SUTURES, THEIR TYPE and IF HE OR SHE IS GOING TO LEAVE THESE PERMANENTLY in your scalp or other areas of your body. Have the surgeon put this in WRITING before your surgery. Find out if screws are going to be used for browlifts and left in your head. Do not be a victim of surprise after the fact. Sad to say most cosmetic surgery patients will NOT come publicy forward with complaints that bear upon their health and that of others who will unknowingly find themselves in deep trouble after the surgery, and for years to come. In my opinion, the use of these imbedded, permanent sutures can significantly shorten one's life.

Healing is the hard part. Hope that you all heal inside and out.

I am here to tell you first hand that [b]VICRYL[b]IS DANGEROUS!
AND IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN DO NOT LET THEM BE SUTURED WITH
THIS PRODUCT.

To begin with I had a simple cysectomy in 2003. My immediate
Reaction to the extremely odd and slow healing process was to
get the stitches out, all seven layers, with 14 knots, I went back
Three times and was told just taking longer to heal, walk around
In underwear like Brittany Spears....so now looking back, my ten
Year old daughter one year before this, fell and cut her chin open.
She had a few stitches which also took loooonger time to heal.
She still has soft spot mark from the stitches.

In 2005 I became pregnant with second child, by the grace of God.
I was having a sceduled c-section and also going to have my tubes
Tied. In 2006 our son was born. Healthy and well thanks be to God.
But this is when it all hit the fan...I has a spinal and was awake for surgery. When they tried to open me up they had such a difficult
Time they COULD NOT cut through my "skin" with the sharpest scalpel
THE DR. HAD TO DIG AND DIG UNTIL HE COULD PRY MY TISSUE APART
WITH HIS FINGURES, THEN THE FUN STARTS, when they went to
Birth our baby he was so far posterior, jammed under my ribs,
Lengthwise, they had difficulty getting him through. Nothing like watching your doctor sweat bullets, while ur on the table, they
Finally birth the baby, and go to begin tubal and the Dr. Cannot
Find my tubes, because there is sooo.. much scar tissue they
cannot Tell where my tubes are. That would be from the
seven layers of a 5" Incision with the VICRYL sutures. And that
is just the beginning, two days later I go very very south and
I go into critical condition because low and behold my colon
was perforated while they were doing the c-section...all because
Of VICRYL sutures. Many many complications later, 23 days in
Hospital, 14 in ICU, not being able to see my newborn, Spiral
Effect of heart lung blood complications . I go home with
Over 10" of open wound from the perforation surgery. I am
sooo lucky to be here I can't even tell you. That is just the
Brunt of it people. I could write a book . The scars do not
go away. I have pictures yes.
But it all goes to deep and still not ready to share those.

SO WHEN YOU SAY " NO VYCRIL SUTURES" FOR YOUR CHILDREN
OR YOURSELF AND THEY LOOK AT YOU LIKE YOU HAVE THREE
HEADS, DO NOT LET THEM GET TO YOU.

And God bless you all with healing.
