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.

I think this is a premed student practicing his stapling skills.

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

I guess that's better than crazy glue.
