My PS told me at my pre-op appointment that the stitches for my ETT would be on the inside so therefore I wouldnt have sutures on the outside... is this a common practice? Has anyone else had this done?
so does that mean he'll use glue to close your incision? I had all my stitches on the inside and my incision was closed with glue. I did have 3 stitches in my BB which they took out a week after surgery!

??? I really dont know... its funny how my pre-op appointment was last monday, but all of a sudden I have all these questions and I keep re-thinking about all the things my surgeon said.... He said the stitches would be on the inside so I wouldnt have sutures and my belly button will have a very very thin stitch.... ??????????
From my experience and what I have read everyone has internal sutures, Edit: Some are just "lucky" enough to have them on the outside as well
The difference is what is on the outside... sutures, tape or "glue" ...

i had all internal stitches with just tape on the outside for the first week, at my first po appt. he took off the tape and I was amazed to see no stitches. (He hadn't told me before hand so I expected to see regular ones). My Dh and I were like "how did you do that" and he just grinned and was pleased with himself. Good Luck
