    It just feels like a little pinch if they get part of the skin other than that I didn't feel anything, and they actuallylet me take some of my own out. I have never had staples in a laparoscopic surgery site, just maybe a stitch or steristrips. How do your incisions look? When will they be taking them out?

    Just making sure, you are not talking about the internal stomach ones, right?

    Yeah I don't know of anyone who has had staples for incisions - obviously the internal staples for the stomach are permanent. I had dissolving stitches and steri-strips. No difficulties at all for me as nothing had to be taken out. I know some folk on here had stitches that needed to be taken out - sounds very routine.

    I didn't know they used staples for laparoscopic surgery, but if you have them don't agonize ! I had a c- section years ago and agonized over the staple removal for a week, sat there totally tensed waiting for the pain, and the doctor handed me the cup full of staples! He had removed them and I wasn't even aware!...I thought he was putting some numbing gel on the area, lol...

    lolol......no im not talking about the internal ones. they did use staples on my 6 incisions. i get them out saturday which will be 18 days out. my incisions look good for the most part. only a little redness where the staples go in......but the actual incisions themselves look great.

    I had about 24 staple across my stomach for an abdominal hysterectomy. they really do not hear coming out. Just a tiny pinch if they skin or scab is on them. You'll be fine.

    It just pinches a little when they take them out. Im surprised u still have them in at 18 days, that's a long time. Usually staples come out at 10 days. The only time it hurts is if the skin started attaching to the staples and that's not all that bad ( ive had 3 c sections and back surgery) it just pinches a little more...u will b fine

    OMG I was so scared to get mine out well because I am a huge baby when it comes to pain. I was shaking I was so nervouse and the Doctor said one down. I was what you did it?? I didn't even feel it. You will do great and OMG the feeling after they are out is so great! Best of luck to you.

    My Dr is in Dallas which is A 3 1/2 hr drive.....he comes to texarkana every other weekend which is only an hours drive that's why it has been 18 days. That's exactly why I worry about it hurting....cause its been so long. We will find out tomorrow around 11......will find out how much weight I've lost too so i am anxious all the way around. Lolol
