Staple Removal

Two weeks after surgery, we return to the Doc to have the two dozen staples removed. The process involves specialized pliers that grab the stable in the center and bend the middle down forcing the sides up. Katie says it will pinch. I think she needs a little remedial pinch training, since her concept of what a pinch feels like is pretty far out.

Without all the surgical packing, the knee now looks just a little swollen. but the zipper effect down the center is a little strange.

Bummed about having the knee immobilized for another five weeks -- that's through the end of May! At least the Doc gets his next look in just three weeks.
