Ganglion

Dear Doc,

Just wanted to find out this should worry me or not. I had a ganglion cyst removed via surgery the last two weeks ago. My ortho used dissolvable stiches, however just at the end of the stitches is a tie (stich) and this tie does not dissolve like the rest of the stiches. Been to my doc for a follow-up post the op, hoever, he didnot remove the stiches. Now, it is starting to itch and oozez a little (literally a tiny) bit of pus. Can I have it removed by my gp?
