Sorry to hear about your injury. I drove a 1/2" chisel into my palm just below and between the index and middle fingers. Both fingers went numb and there was blood on the ceiling. It took 8 stitches to close it and I asked the ER doc about nerve damage. She said there was nothing they could do, it would either heal or not. It took about 6 months for the feeling to come back in the finger tips. That was scarier than the wound which you know will heal. It sounds like you have avoided any nerve damage which is good news. Watch out for infection. If you can find the time it may be worth a trip to the ER just to be sure it doesn't get infected.

Just incase, you think there is a chance of infection, maybe you otta head on down to
Bob's Bait and Tackle, and pick up a smack of leaches. Just dip your hand
in that leach jar, and wait till a bunch latch on. Then you can just go on about your work.
They'll clean that bad blood outta there.
Nothing wrong with a little blood letting every now and then.
Oh yeah, keep a bit of salt in your pocket, to get them leaches off, just incase you gotta
shake someones hand. And also, don't forget to put the lid back on the jar. If you live in
a damp environment, they'll make it all the way over to the dog. That's no good.

LOL I think I will use the leaches for the professionals. When I did hospital security I had to go to another hospital in a different town to get a jar of leaches. Not sure what they used them for exactly and I really didn't want to know. Funny how I could watch an autopsy and never pat an eye byt those little wrigglers mademe uncomfortable.



I am changing my bandage every day and keeping an eye on it for rot. Should be alright in a bit. I have a DR appt in a few days so I will let him look at it then. If nothing else I will get a tetanus booster. I am about due for one.

Yeah, I was just kidding about the leaches. Get it looked after if it starts to rot.

Moral to the story - don't stab yourself it hurts.


Are you sure??? :smilewink:

Seem like we are all RAMBO at times.


I was 23 and sharpening my hunting knife on a sunday morning sliced the web between my index finger and my thumb.... At the hospital they called me Rambo.. lol


Don't have any turpentine. I will apply alcohol internally and see if that helps.


Helps me.. Till morning

Never cut myself to bad, but I have stuck a few nails thru my fingers. Went clean thru and half of it was sticking out the other side. Had a numb finger for several days.
