stitches and another few questions

i had a labiaplasty surgery only 3 days ago. so far, it has all been healing quite well, no major pain, no major swelling. i feel some itchiness and kind of 'movement' down there though as if the stitches were moving (tightening, loosening, i don't really know). is that normal? my other concern is that my labia minora used to look ok for the first day or two, now it seems to non-regularly grow together with my labia majora kind of in the middle (only the right one). i am freaking out because i definitely do not want it to look like that! and i can tell they are growing together forming an irregular bit. i also have two bits of skin left near my anus area that are way bigger than the rest of my labia minora (and they are not very painful or swollen). do you think it might still look nice and regular? thanks for your answer.

It is hard to know if you are healing normally since there is no photograph to evaluate. However, the way you describe things, it is probably normal healing but I cannot be certain.
