Thanks for your query.Your father had a injury to his thumb and few stitches were taken.He is on pain killers and now stitches have been removed.You need to take pain killers and anti inflammatory medicine for two weeks .You can reduce the dose of the medicine to his comfort gradually.and stop the same after three weeks.
