For those who have had them removed - what am I in for? Did it hurt? :hurt: Mine are supposed to come out today...

Did you have any redness around the staples? I have a few that are quite red and a couple the are oozing a wee bit. My first surgeon used stiches internal and external, so this is a new experience...

Thanks!

Mine didn't hurt at all actually, I had them taken out twice. I think one pinched once...piece of cake for me atleast...maybe someone else will say something else.

Good luck.

I'm the one that pulls them out, I try to avoid getting them put in! :laugh: :laugh: I rarely have a pt. c/o of much pain, unless there is redness and drainage which sounds like you have. You might have a start of an infection, time for them to come out and maybe an antibiotic! Hopefully it isn't to bad for you- Di

I had them with my hysterectomy and didn't feel a thing when they were removed, and I had a lot of them.

When I had my 1st csection i had staples and they didnt hurt at all when being removed, they did leave little holes though so be careful when bathing

Staples are out. It wasn't too bad - It looks worse now though...bla. No antibiotics, just polysporin, for now.

Thank you for the words of wisdom.

Cheers
