Good morning, ma'am,
Yes, it is always possible for staples to come loose. Did you receive any post-op reading material during your discharge?

These are only documents for my diet and not for post-op care

Thank you for the clarification.
As for sutures or staples at the incision site, the presence of discharge or increased discharge should be reported to the nurse or physician.
For internal staples, this question should be redirected to the nurse or surgeon, depending on their location.
