How long does a wound take to heal after stitches?
I cut the palm of my hand ( between my thumb and index finger), 5 weeks ago, it is still really sore when something touches it, it's hard as well and it's swollen, I cut it on glass and got 10 stitches I'm worried there might be a piece of glass in there or something... Should i be worried?

When we have a deep cut that needs stitches, the healing process means that a 'hard ridge' should form as the cut starts to heal. As you stated it is 'hard' it is healing. As for the time, we are all different, but as the stitches were removed, the Doctor must be happy with the situation.


Jo
have you been massaging the area and touching it a lot? your body can become more sensitive after an injury and requires lots of stimulation to return it to normal, if you shy away from touching it, it will never resolve. Massaging the area will break down scar tissue and also help remove swelling.

I wouldn't worry myself, but it may be worth to get it checked just to reassure you.
