    Clean pair of small scissors, slide under and cut. Pull out with tweezers.

    I did it a few years ago, no bother.

    Havnt read the whole thread but its a doddle. I took my own out my foot a year back and there really is nothing to it. Clean the area with some disinfectant wipes or spay as well as the scissors, then cut the stitch and pull through. It doesn't hurt at all, just remember not to pull the knot through the wound.

    My other half did this a couple of weeks ago after cutting her leg at work (mortal).

    She hasn't started smelling of almonds just yet.

    done it a couple of times. the first time i'd asked the doc when she put them in if i could take them out and she said it was fine... like others have said just make sure the scissors/knife are clean and you clean the wound afterwards.
  8. How much will it cost if you do it wrong and infect the wound?

    Nothing, silly. You just take a knife and cut off the infected areas. Piece of cake.
  10. No wonder they call you lot Septics. ;)

    It's hard to argue against that when you have shit like this going on in America:

    It's more like, yeah, fuck. I'm with you fuckers on that name.
