Among the weirdest things I've ever asked. Has anyone else passed staples post surgery? They are quite tiny and look like the letter B. I didn't even know (until today) that my innards were put back together with staples!!
When you have a resection done they either sew or staple the healthy ends of the bowel together. So these aren’t incisional staples.You mean passed as in excreted them? From what I understand staples either need to be removed post-op or they dissolve naturally. They certainly shouldn't move and come out your bottom. That would be very disturbing and dangerous. Hope I understand the question.
Thanks! You'd think they would mention that . I've had a few. I think I'm going to call the surgeon to be on the safe side.When you have a resection done they either sew or staple the healthy ends of the bowel together. So these aren’t incisional staples.
I would imagine a couple of staples wouldn’t be a problem but if you are talking about a few or more then I think you need to contact the surgeon, just to be on the safe side.
