what do people do about staple removal if the surgeon is at a distance..?
particularly if I want to keep this private..even from my own physician..
I'm in New York city if that's relevant..
You should be given a small tool to aid you to remove the staples. This can be used by a family member. See this video :
Alternatively you could see your local nurse who can do it or if in NYC then i'm certain a local HT doc would help you out.

No worries dude - if you have a problem drop me an email and i can arrange for Dr Feller to help out - you would need get out to Great Neck :cool:

I have used that tool many times. In some cases, they do not come out as easy as the link shows.
