So apparently I was wrong about my dr using the glue. I had my appt today and just to double check asked exactly what she used (I was seeing the NP though and not my actual dr, I'll see her next time and plan to ask a lot more questions!). from all of my research (and I've done tons the last couple weeks!) the closure options for c/s are staples, disolvable stitches, or glue. My dr does the dissolvable stitches on the uterus but apparently for the skin closure, she uses a dissolvable CLIP that goes under the skin. My nurse practitioner said it will leave a ridge underneath the scar for about 12 weeks postpartum before it dissolves. I have NEVER heard of this and can't find anything about it online!! She said it's been used in other hospitals in AZ for a long while, but that the hospital I'm delivering at just started using it about 9 months ago. It just scares me sinc eI can't find a single thing about a clip closure online! Has anyone heard of this/experienced it? I see the actual dr next friday so I'm going to ask lots of questions about it but just wanted some input!

Ok so I *think* this must be what my dr is using now:

Incisive Surgical : INSORB Absorbable Stapler

I'll be asking for sure at my next week appt though! I feel better having found this though LOL

That reminds me I really need to remind my DR of my metal allergy

That is very interesting. I was closed up with a mixture of disolvable stitches and staples. To be honest I didn't mind the staples. My scar is invisable and I didn't have any problems with the healing process.

Wow that looks really cool. The first time I had staples and all was well until one flipped during removal. Then the second time I had the strips and within 6 days at home part of the cut had opened and I had an infection .......so I'm hoping for staples this time
