Re: staples removed-sounds ouch!

good! I'm glad you posted and checked. Staples in for ovr a month would not be good. And some clinics are too busy to do checkup calls. (my dentists and veterinarian do, but not my GP or specialists)

Staples are often left in for 14 days as well. Mine were - and it was good that they were, because I was just barely healed. I still have scabs along mine (5 weeks tomorrow).

My ab is still numb almost 2 years later.. when I had my staples removed week after surgery I didnt feel a thing! In fact my Dr was upset the nurses didnt remove them before I left the hospital!

GOOD LUCK

Some of us don't have numb incisions - mine is so sensitive I cannot put on pants with a zipper -OUCH! My doctor specifically said to keep mine in 14 days...we are all different, and will heal differently.
