C-sections

Staple question

As I get closer to d-day (Monday...4 days away eek!) I am starting to get nervous about pain.  I am a huge wimp, and my current worry is about getting the staples taken out.  I will get them out on day 3 or 4 before I leave the hospital.  How bad is the pain???

Re: Staple question

  • I had to go back to the doctor a week later to get them out. It didn't really hurt, I barely felt it.

  • Oh, the staples are a silly thing to be worried about!  I had mine removed the day I left the hospital and I barely felt a thing.  Certainly no "pain" associated with removing them.  The pain came from the giant hole they just cut through my whole mid section!

  • Mine came out the day I left the hospital - 5 days PP.  Didn't hurt one bit! I, too, was nervous about getting them out, but really had no reason to be in the end.  Hope that puts your mind at ease some Smile

  • My ob took them out a day after delivery. Didn't feel anything. I was like, "that's it????" She was like, "yep:)" My pain was so well managed that I'm hoping it'll be the same this time!

    This was me too.  Very quick and easy.  Not painful at all.

  • This time I had dissolving staples that didn't even need to come out.  With ds, I had traditional staples and they took them out the day I was discharged.  They just felt like a tiny pinch.  On the spectrum of things that hurt with a c-section, that was the least of them.

  • Mine came out a week later at the office with no meds and I was perfectly fine.  It didn't hurt at all.  ANd I am a huge huge wimp when it comes to pain.  The iodine stung a little at the end, no where near like alchohol stings or anything just a dull stinging for a second.

  • I was super worried about that too especially since my staple holes were tender and some swollen and oozing, but when I went to the MW at 6 days post-partum, I hardly even felt it.
