Hi Gillian and Martha,
I have had numerous surgeries too. My staples usually came out in ten days or so. But I guess each patients healing process and progress is individual. Have you asked your surgeon why such a long wait to remove those staples?
I buy beautiful and sexy one piece swimsuits now, so I don't mind the scars. What I am happy about is that I have no more pains with each BM and that I am feeling better than I was. So I am glad for each scar as it reminds me of how bad I felt before!
God bless and stay well,
I am in my 50s. Crohn's Disease (since childhood), pancreatitis, diabetes, neuropathy, arthritis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, asthma, Rosecea. I have had 4 surgeries including pancreas/sphincterplasty, duodenum, resection, proctectomy with sigmoid colonectomy. I have a permanent colostomy.___________________ ____________________
