Those staples suck man, they start itching and coming loose as the cuts start healing and then you just wanna rip them out! You only got a few tho luckily, but they are gonna start driving you nuts after about a week. I had 56 in my back from my spine reconstruction with all those screws and rods they put in to put my spine back together, it will take a while to get fully healed and functional normally again, I am just over 3 weeks outta mine and still not doing very well yet. Good luck to you and hope you have a speedy recovery, you are one very lucky man but good to hear things got fixed and that good ole cyst is now gone due to some goofy luck! Godspeed brother!
