The staples...



Recommended Posts

Yes, that's correct. There's also usually sutures over the staple line.

Staples? Where are they?

No staples in me you see, laparoscopy wounds are usually just stitched because they are small.

I think she means to her stomach - Yes they stay in for life and get covered up by your body as you heal

yes. Surgeons leave staples in with a lot of types of surgeries - not just bariatric. They're made of titanium and won't hurt you. I have some from my plastic surgery, too (in my abdomen)

This is the sleeve forum so I assume they are referring to how they make the sleeve from the stomach.

I've always had staples, the band in, the band out, and sleeve surgery. They come out lickety-split easier than stitches. Not an issue.

if you had gastric bypass, the two sections of your stomach are probably sectioned off by staples. I suppose they could have sutured it off, but they usually use staples.

All of my laparoscopic surgery used staples. I've had 4 and staples were always used.

Just another one of those differences I guess, I've had 3 never had staples :)

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!
