Thank you for the query.
Even if the doctor were a little nervous, he did fine, finding the stitches. So it looks like this doctor is a good choice. You may be suffering from same problem as under the skin, usually there is few layers of the stitches, and in some persons, such stitches do irritate the tissues and cause inflammation. I suggest you to have also soft tissues ultrasound
to see if there is no fluid accumulation in soft tissues.
Hope this will help.
