I've had two cesareans, both unplanned. The first I had metal staples and it sucked, they were so painful and poked me. The second time I asked to be stitched and it was much better.
So I'm pregnant with twins right now and I'm having a planned c/s for the first time. Which is nerve-wracking, even though I've had 2. I asked my new OB if he'd suture instead of staple, and he said he doesn't suture, he uses "dissolvable staples". I have never heard of this. What are they, what are they made of (I wanna know what's gonna be dissolving into my body, LOL) and does anyone have experience with them? Do they poke you? How long do they take to dissolve?
Unless they are somehow better in a way I can't picture, I'm gonna put my foot down and ask to be stitched. The whole staple thing weirds me out.
