    You guys want to see something really grotesque?

    Post by PlasticandRage on Thu Apr 12, 2012 2:00 am

    Possibly my worst war wound ever. I really mangled myself on a hike this
    afternoon. I'm warning you now: this is NOT for those with weak stomachs
    or fragile sensibilities. I just got 22 stitches if that's any
    indicator. The sight of it made me feel worse than the injury itself.
    It's that bad.

    Before hospital

    After hospital

    I slipped down a rock and caught my knee on something sharp. I'm not entirely sure what. It happened pretty fast.

    Nice dude.

    If only I took a picture when I broke my femur and my arm, it's creepy when something points the wrong direction.

    I have to find a picture of my friends hand, he was riding his bike and smashed it in between the tree and the handlebars and I swear it looks like it exploded.

    I've never seen a real hyper extension in person before. I mean I've broken fingers before but that doesn't really count. I imagine a whole arm isn't pleasant looking. You get that nasty sickly feeling in your stomach like your body is telling you you're an idiot. I've pretty much had that feeling all evening. I was hiking with a couple of friends, hence the photos. Otherwise I'm sure I would have been preoccupied enough with just trying to get myself back to the car. I think I was in mild shock when it happened. In fact I probably wont be nearly as amused by this tomorrow morning. Once the demerol has worn off and I've slept on it.

    It's very odd, the injury itself doesn't hurt... Until the recovery starts.

    Yeah it didn't really feel like much at the time. It just felt like I banged it really hard. Then I started to rub it and it was wet through my pant leg. That's generally never a good sign. I think if I had left it alone and not pulled my pant leg up to look at it it probably wouldn't have peeled all the way up like that. How could I have known before seeing it though ya know? Hind sight is 20/20 I guess.

    Man, sorry to hear about your injury. It looks like your knee is giving birth. I hope you are suitably medicated.

    That's a ***** injury. silly

    Seriously though hope your leg holds up okay after it's healed, and you don't get too many lasting effects from the injury, luckily it's just the flesh affected by look of it so once it's healed it's healed big grin

    Saw the warnings and clicked on the photos anyhow because that's what I do. Wow that looks painful! I hope you heal up quickly!

    According to the doctors everything seems to be in order. I don't have any muscle or nerve damage or anything. It literally just peeled the flesh back. It hurts like an *explicit reference* today though. I don't like taking unnecessary pills if I don't have to. I needed to be medicated last night while they were fixing it but I'm just dealing with the pain myself now. It feels exactly like it looks. Like somebody is digging around up inside of it with a straightened coat hanger.

    Oh and we went back up there today to try to figure out what I fell on that did it. It was part of a metal street sign. Which means I get the pleasure of getting tetanus shots now too.

    It is going to be an absolutely gnarly scar when its healed. I'll get to make up outlandish stories about what caused it. Like I got my leg caught in the sarlac pit.

    That's some good news at least. As a consolation prize if you're ever taking a trip to Letchworth I can show you the bat cave. Assuming it hasn't been totally sealed. Haven't been inside in over a decade

    I love stuff like that. The town I'm from has all kinds of old cave systems and stuff. Actually the caves that inspired some of James Fenimore Cooper's Deer Slayer novels. I like to bring women on hikes up there.

    Sweet, they're either charmed or assume they're gonna be buried there. That sounds really cool though. We keep this up and Cuomo is gonna make us do tourism commercials

    I didn't realize I was that obvious. Now I'm going to have to move all those bodies.

    Very epic. I am sure you're itching to get back out there. The hiking around me is great too, and any setback to me is frustrating time wasted. Hoping for your speedy recovery!

    That sums it up pretty well. I've been in training for Mckinley for awhile now too and now I'm probably going to put on weight just sitting around healing. Every physical thing I do right now makes it feel like its ripping, like pretty much moving my leg in any way. It's only day 2 though. I'm sure that'll get better.

    Good point about the scar, we should come up with a suitable story. I'm thinking bear trap or maybe anaconda fight.

    Maybe I was caught in a bear trap then was attacked by an anaconda while I was trying to get myself free? Oooor I was attacked by an anaconda with a bear trap stuck in its mouth?

    You fell on a bear trap while wrestling an Anaconda.

    Or the Zookeepers threw a bear trap at you while wrestling an Anaconda at the zoo.

    I jumped into the bear enclosure at the zoo to rescue a stranded news anchor and his dog from grizzlies. When the bears went for him I threw myself in front of him like a human shield.

    That's just about the limit of my quotes from that scene lol

    So I'll just go ahead and say it: "I love lamp".

    Do you really love the lamp? Or are you just saying that because you saw one?
