     As far as I know, they are leaving my staples in.  Could that be because I have a permanent ileo?  Or do you mean your sutures?

they won't leave your staples in, they would fall out on their own eventually.

     I have no idea....would it be inside the anus?  He left the anus intact...wish he wouldn't have as I still have discomfort when sitting for a long period of time.

     Thinking about it, he must have meant sutures not staples.

Dillon has staples connecting his anus to his J pouch (three rows actually) ...they will be there forever...at least that is how I understand it

Most surgeons use stapling for the jpouch. And yes, those staples can be there for life or sometimes they dislodge and are passed on.

ok i thought she was talkign about the staples on the outside, like the closed my incision up with.
I can understand them being used for the jpouch, that makes sense.
