Arghhh! Pain in the arse (not literally) doctors surgery.
I’ve had a small operation in my left hand. Carpal tunnel. I’ve got some stitches that will need removing on Monday but apparently the nurse isn’t in on Monday. But I cannot go in any other day. Not possible.Posted 4 years ago
So should a GP take them out if I book an appointment or should I DIY it…?
Yes. Nurse is in on Tuesday but I can’t get there. I’ve got a shop to run and I need them out ASAP as I’m starting a new job the following Monday.

DrP – cheers mate. I’ll probably be riding the following weekend. Motorbike at least on the Monday to get to new job. 🙂 No choice there.
As an aside you can tell those on salaried jobs – one bloke was taking 6 weeks off work for the same op whilst I was there. I took 2 days.lemonysamMember
In the past my GP has given me the tools (sterile hook shaped blade thing and tweezers) to take them out myself when I was going to be away when they needed to be done. It’s very straightforward but much easier with the little hooky blade thing than a knife. If you can get an assistant to hold the stitch for you whilst you cut it then I’d do that.Posted 4 years ago
+1, very heroic and that, but why the loyalty?
Oh I have the best answer in the world for that! 🙂
My current manager has also been interviewed for the managers job at the very same shop I’m going to. He’s a nice guy, he’s in the same boat as me and the only person I’ll be screwing over will be him. Capishce? 😉
Anyhow, I went back and spoke to someone who was more flexible and it all sorted. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
