  • Some doctors use staples, some use stitches, and some use the dissolvable stitches. She might just not have know which was used.

  • Some have staples, removable stitches, and dissolvables. It depends on the doc and incision and hospital. She prob didnt know what you had and was just making sure cause if you had removables, they did need to be taken out. lol. No biggie, just ignore it. I wish i had dissolvable had 25 staples, and those suckers hurt!

  • Did you ask her if she was reading the correct file? And if you had dissovables, you shouldnt need to make an appointment to have them checked on, just on you and how you are recovering.
