I had staples with both my c-sections and 2 other surgeries i had. The only thing that i didn't like about it was the pulling feeling you get when they started to heal, and the soreness the day after they were removed. Dh came along with me when i had my first set removed and was asking the doctor how they removed them, she says " just like a staple remover" ugh, not what you want to hear. Have you seen how staple removers rip the staples out?!!! Only she was joking, but i didn't know that at the time and was just about freaking out when it was time to remove them.
