This is a very good question. I would ask if they use glue and stitches or staples and stitches. The other would be to ask if they use a pain pump.

The one i went to today uses glue and disolvale stitches as well as a pain pump. What are your thoughts on that?

I prefer stitches to staples, having had both previously with my two C sections. I would ask about pain control and how many drains, if any. The drains were horrible! And you want a doc who aggressively treats pain BC it is a major surgery.

I think it sounds great! Maybe less chance of a big scar? I would prefer that over staples any day! I don't know a lot about it but that's what I prefer. I saw one video where the doctor put the stitches to the belly button inside the belly button to reduce telltale signs (stitch marks) and it seemed to work beautifully. I'm going to ask about that at my consultation (if they ever call me back lol)

The ps i met with today does disolvable stitches and glue. There are two drains and he also inserts a pain pump. I really liked the idea of the pain pump and the disolvable stitches. I really liked this ps but am going to meet with a least one more so i have something to compare him to
