i have a deep cut which was sutured on my left elbow.
Removal of sutures is generally not very painful, at least not painful enough to need a local or anything. If you like, you can take a dose of pain medication if it is still tender (either a prescription pain reliever, if they gave you one, or just a dose of OTC pain meds like Tylenol or Advil to help with any discomfort but as a rule, it isnt a very painful procedure)
