Good luck!!! Don't rush your healing by trying to do too much too soon. Lots of jingles!!

Too bad it's the weekend, or I would suggest going in early to have the staples assessed.

Stitches are easy to take out by yourself, but staples... I dunno....

They come out 8am on Monday, so not really, 2 days. You need a special tool to get then out.

I figured as much. But you're down to 2 nights and 1 day! Keep counting down!

But, on the other hand, if the staples "look bad" -- is there any chance they are infected? Or, are they just gross because of the healing?

They don't really look bad, just not as good as the rest of the insisions. Some are starting to pop out on their own, so I think my body is doing what it is designed to do, and are rejecting them. I think I'm going to change try and get mom to change bandages early tonight. I'm already ready to go to bed, and it is not even 7 yet.

Healing is an exhausting business. Sleep well and long! :)

Before I let someone pull stitches, I apply a small amount of Vaseline to them. They slip out with ease, no feeling like being stuck with a pin.

I've had more stitches pulled than I can count, but never had staples before. It's goin to be interesting.

I have stitches, but they are under the skin, and around the areola. Those are already gone, and almost 100% healed, like nothing had ever happened.
