Re: My Recent PPH Surgery Experience

I was told that the staples eventually go away. What surprises me is that they said there are approximately 60-70 staples used for this procedure. I had no idea there were that many. They do not go in and remove them and the doctors are telling me that eventually they come out through bowel movements, months or years later. I am getting ready to have an outpatient procedure under anesthesia so they can check and see why I'm having so many problems 11 weeks later. The doctor said he'll be surprised if I have any of the staples left, so we'll see what happens. Have you had the PPH surgery before?
