Chrissy! Leave it alone! Let your Dr take care of it, call the nurse or something, but don't go cutting on yourself. As far as your beauty, I can tell you are a beautiful person where it counts, you have been a great new friend to me and a piller of support to many, I can tell by reading the message boards. Your beauty is full and intact so worry not. After I had my Hystorectomy, they left the staples in for 2 weeks and the staples began to pull at my skin and became awfully uncomfortable, so one day I pulled one out, opps, the skin of the incision popped open, now I have a clean scar except for at the very top where I pulled that staple, the scar is a little wider and poofs out a little. In Short......Don't do that! God Bless and Take Care of You Tammy Lynn At Mon, 22 Jul 2002, wrote: >
