C-section staples


I had my son by emergency C-section 1 week ago today. I was so out of it in the hospital when they were telling me this and that, I don't remember if they even told me when I'm supposed to get my staples out? Does anyone know how long they usually leave them in? And another thing.. My incision looks good, not red or anything, but where each staple is in its red on both sides of the staple..does that make sense? They aren't weeping or anything..but could it be getting infected where each staple is put in?

Thanks girls

No, hehehe. Staples...like what they use in a stapler. Here's a pic : http://z.about.com/d/pregnancy/1/0/p...6riggsscar.jpg

Anywho, back to OP, I had my staples taken out before I left the hospital. So I guess they were in there less than 2 days. The redness around where the staple holes are is fine. Mine was like it also and I didn't get an infection.

Mine were in for a handful of days, I would think yours are due to be taken out very soon.

I think your staples should be taken out after a week. It's normal for them to be red around the ends like that but I would recommend trying to get them taken out in case it gets painful!
