Not much to report. I took the staples out, they were due to come out at 14 days not the usual 10 day's. I didn't prepare very good in advance, waited to the 11 day to start looking for someone to take them out, and I didn't want to take the long drive back to feller. I called a few local places but everyone said to go back to the doctor that put them in. The 15 day was a saturday, and I wanted these things out, so decided to take them out myself
I manage to get all of them out. 3 of them gave me some problems, I must have only had one of the prongs under the staple, or I didn't have the tool centered, and mangled up the staple pretty bad. The last one I mangled up so bad I had to just give it a JERK like the many fishing lures I"ve had stuck in my fingers ,arms and face -lol
After all that, I started getting paranoid that I might get an infection, even though I cleaned the area before and after with alchol. I'm on the 19 day and no sign of infection, knock on wood.
I'm still paranoid that I might have missed one, even though I can't see or feel any. I even ran the metal detector over my head -lol
The redness has been disappearing everyday, and a lot of hairs have shed, which I know is normal
Here's a picture from today
