My ob removed the staples for me last time but not sure who will remove it this time since I have a new OB now.

My staples dissolve- don't need to be removed.

If the nurse is doing it right neither staples nor stitches should hurt when being removed. (speaking as a nurse who has removed both more then once)

I had stitches and will get them again. Stapes freak me out so I'm glad not to have them!

I had staples with my first and assume that is what I will get again this time (they didn't give me a choice).
