In order to take a 1" x 2" piece of muscle for biopsy out of my right thigh, they made this incision. It measures about 3.5".



I am willing to SHARE. Who is up for it?

Stitches hell, count them, there are NINE metal staples. Stitches would have taken time to put in and doctors work on volume.

Even when they replaced my knee a couple years back, they closed the incision with staples!
