    I got the rest of my staples out this week. Surgery was May 17th, so this picture is 16 days after surgery. Doc says it is looking good. Very little bruising.

    Got my staples out today. 10 days post op. 16 staples, nurse said I was healing too well as a few of the staples were under the skin! Barely hurt- few pinches. Photo with staples and without- incision is about 12cms.
