Do not Google degloving. It isn't worth it.

These can be pretty gross. I worked with a guy that cut his fingers off with a dado blade. He had to have cadaver fingers grafted back on. Not all of them took - the one that didn't started to rot and had to be amputated.

No, you don't want a video of any of that, either.

FWIW, the entire article is online and so are many predators.
This info (including the photo) is useful to someone and will be sold to list brokers.
Lock and load!

And if you ever win the lottery try to remain anonymous.
I have heard of winners getting letters from persons with a sense of entitlement that said,
"You now have money. I want/need/will have some of that so send it to me immediately." Period!

Motion was really good until this last surgery

Have feeling in everything thing except the grafted skin on the back of my hand

You know that looks rough, but really, wow!
You've got a great attitude and don't forget the positives.

I had a bad ski accident 17 years ago took out a six inch fence post at about 55 mph. Ruptured spleen, shattered collar bone and broke the ball of my shoulder into eight pieces. Long story short, they pinned me together, tied the ends of my collar bone together and said "we'll see". , Surgeon told me I'd never lift my hand straight over my head again. After four months of intensive PT, and lots of pain I was on the mend. Today I spend most of my time working over my head- with both hands! Don't ever give up!

Best of luck and God bless!

Mine didn't swell up that bad. As soon as nerves started working again, I could move everything, but it was painful. No graft for me and swelling was gone after 2 months, so I'm interested in how it's going. Obviously more to heal than I had.

Re: Been In The Hospital All Week [Disturbing Pictures]


If you ever get down, I'd walk through a VA hospital ward, there is always some one who got it worse, but is manning up to the challenge... for me the shame I feel getting down about my own relatively 'small' problems gets me re-motivated.

Your hand looks a damn site better than a stump.
Godspeed.

Re: Been In The Hospital All Week [Disturbing Pictures]


I think it looks pretty good considering how bad it was initially.

I saw a picture here on this site of a contractor with lots of jewelry on and my first thought was how unsafe that was. It only takes 1 misstep to get it caught on something.

I know someone who lost a finger on a ladder when his ring got caught after he slipped on a rung and fell 3 feet. But it still pulled his finger off

Glad I didn't have my ring on
I told my wife I'm not sure if I will ever wear it again.
Maybe on date night or something
