  • they took mine out right befor i left the hospital it was about 4days after i had my son.
    Ask your dr though if they staple or stich you some drs still use stiches.
    I prefer stiches i think dr who staple are just to lazy to take there time to do the job right.

  • I had the baby on a Wednesday. They took out the staples on Saturday before I left the hospital.

  • i had my daughter on a sunday and was in the hospital until wednesday... they took out half (every other one) of my staples the day i was leaving the hospitaland put on a couple of sturi-strips. Took the other staples out at my next dr appt which was the next tuesday and applied more sturi-strips. So i had mine in for about 1 week + a few days! Now you can barely see a scar! Thank heaven...
