Sue.. how did your staples work out for you? When I had my c-section "23 years ago" they used staples but they wouldn't let me leave the hospital until they took them out.

This time the doc used the "same" exact incision. Then she used some surgical superglue and steri strips on the outside. I got to shower the same day I came home. How cool is that?

Let us know how the post op visit goes. I don't go in until 01/04.

Deb,

The staples worked out ok. I had a very large uterus (20wk pregnancy sz) and had to have a verticle incision. It runs up and around my navel. I had staples and a few visible stitches. The staples came out pretty easily except for the ones up near my navel. They were alittle tender afterwards. She also put sterile strips afterwards. They are still there, although I have showered everyday.

Driving can happen when you can sit comfortably in your car, lift both feet up and not hurt if you need to slam on the brakes! I admit I drove before I should have, but when it snowed here, I stopped. I drove to and from the store and that is 2 blocks away. Brain fog and other not so good drivers make it very hazardous to drive before you are completely ready.....

I was 2 weeks out and drove. It wasn't the driving that got to me...it was getting in and out of the car that was MY demise!!
