Should we go back to the emergency room? Update

Yesterday my 23 month fell and cut his lip in 4 places. 2 cuts were bad enough to need stitches. He got a total of 4 stitches. 2 stitches on each side. We were there for over 5 hours. He had to be tightly swaddled an held down.
Last night both stitches one side fell out. Should I take him back in and make him go through all that again? Or should I let it heal on its own?

Also yesterday dh went with me and my mom watch the other kids and today I will have go by myself and have all 3 kids with me.

Update: I had to run out to buy some straw sippys because his regular cups hurt his mouth and he was refusing a regular straw. No bleeding but I can tell he is in pain. If it opens up again we will be off to the er. But this time I will drive the extra 15 minutes to go to the children's er.
