Alright here is the deal...I have had my staples in for 11 days now, and they are starting to get a bit red and sore around the insertion point of the staple. I also picked at my scar...I know I know not a good idea (I didn't pick too much, honestly) but now one of my staples as popped up and out on one side...is this ok? My stomach is still pretty tender, and I am just wondering if this is normal or if there is any room for concern? Maybe I am overreacting, but I just dont feel like getting a gross infection. Thanks all! Have a glorious christmas!
