The good news is that the staples have been removed from my stomach. The bad news is that there is going to be a really visible scar for the rest of my life.
There was a real sense of freedom coming out of Dr. Casano’s office and realizing that the staples were gone. I felt like I could move a little more freely, not worry about various twists, etc. I was happy to be staple free.

So now that I’m staple free, I figured I’d share a picture of what the staples looked like. Now, some people are going to think that I went overboard on my graphic photo warning. But, if I hadn’t done that, some unsuspecting reader would have gone straight to the picture and “eeewwwww…” and then I would have gotten a nasty email about how inappropriate it was to show that picture.
Well, I suppose it could be inappropriate, but for anyone who cares about science, biology, etc. it’s actually not a bad little lesson.
And, maybe you should show your teenager what bad driving can do to you.
