  • I had disolvable stitches with my c-section but had staples for my back surgery and they didn't really hurt at all..it helped that I couldn't see what he was doing
     
    you will be fine and just take things easy..I know you are not that type of person
     
    but c-sections are major surgery and your body needs to heal
     
Thank you mac71!

  • I didnt get staples with my first, but I did w/Ty and the Dr didnt take them out in the hops, b/c they were irritated and she wanted me to wait a few more days, well, I was never so nervous about this "removal" but it was so simple and no pain at all, no real after care either, just keep doing what I was doing keeping it clean and dry but not rubbing it ect... good luck, I know how you feel though, its the fear of the unknown!

    ya know what did hurt though, was the damn tape burn from the steri strip, I thought i was dying when I got in the shower and didnt know it was there, when the water hit it I screamed! I swear that hurt worse than the entire section and healing!
