Shaq RECORDS As Staples PLUCKED from Giant Leg

Former NBAer Shaquille O'Neal had a bunch of surgical staples YANKED from his massive leg today ... and, of course, he recorded the painfully gross ordeal for all to see.

Shaq recently went under the knife to repair his injured right Achilles tendon -- and, from the looks of the footage, the surgery required doctors to open a FOOT-LONG gash to get the job done.

But this morning, Shaq -- with girlfriend Nikki "Hoopz" Alexander by his side -- rolled back to the doctor's office ... and had the staples removed.

It's pretty gross ... but you should probably watch it anyway.
