I bought a set of self-piercing “guns” to get my ears pierced and ready for some real earrings. Woohoo!
Six weeks ago, they came in the mail and I nervously “shot” myself in front of the mirror. You can find my post on this event in my profile.
The instructions said to wait 6 weeks before removing, so I lived with the little studs glittering under my hair, patiently waiting to try the new earrings that I had bought for the occassion. It seemed like the training wheels posts were rather hard to remove, even tho I had “turned” the earrings every day. When I went to put the wires into the holes, they made it through the first hole, but it was hard to fidn the back hole. Meanwhile, the wire was fishing around under the skin and trashing the flesh in my lobe. Eventually the wire found the back hole and I was able to wear the earring with a surprising amount of irritation.
As I was removing the wire earrings and replaicng the training posts, I thought about why my ears would not be healing and why they would still feel irritated after 6 weeks. I came to the surprising conclusion that it was caused by the anti-coagulants that keep me alive.
So are there any other cumadin patients out there who had this kind of fun with earrings? How long did it take? Did you find a way to accelerate the healing process?
Thank for any help you can offer.
