Re: Tiseal Glue instead of stitches..INPUT NEEDED
I didn't have the glue - however, it was suggested on this board to request it if you could. My stitches didn't hurt when being removed, but others have said they did. depends on WHO is taking them out. My docs "helper doc" took them out and was VERY gentle and VERY slow removing them. The people who had the glue were VERY satisfied with it!
My scar ...............WHAT SCAR?? You really have to look carefully!!
Be sure to drink a LOT of water - before and after! Also, DEMAND the anti nausea med they give you to keep from getting sick after surgery from the anesthesia. Some here didn't have it and wish they had. That was the worst part for them. Two things stand out about my surgery -
1. I can't remember much at all about after surgery the first day - have someone with you to write down things docs say and do and be your advocate.
2. Have someone there to help you go to the bathroom - I was drinking a lot of water (partially to get the anesthesia out of my system)
Some say it is the easiest surgery they ever had. I don't have much to compare it to, except having babies!!
It is good to trust your surgeon, however, NEVER feel like you can't ask questions. Mine answered my 2 pages of questions - every single one. If they won't, I would worry. It pays to be informed on what is happening to YOUR body!
