Thanks y'all! I am taking it easy. But my Dr.put me together so well that he told me I have a 25 pound weight limit. So I have to take my dressing off when DH get's home. I am a little scared. I have never had staples. They will come out in 3 weeks. I watched a video on it and it did not look to bad. Anyone had any they can tell me what a breeze they will be?
My Dr. told me to get up and walk around and that is what I have been doing several times a day. Today I only took one pain pill so I can see if I can quit taking them sooner.
So glad that this is over for you and you are doing well. Yep..do what that doc says! lol..sure you are. Itchy staple are coming up when things start to heal..just like stitches. It won't hurt any more than having stitches taken out. Nope. I personally don't think it hurts to have stitches taken out. Have watched a son have the staples taken out many a time. He doesn't even flinch.
