No problem... My husband freaked out the first time it happened to him. I was too, on the inside, but telling him it was normal while I googled it.
He called his surgeon to double check and he said all was normal. Eric also had black strings (sutures I guess) that came out months after his reversal surgery. Guess they just take a while to work themselves down and out of the system.
