The tip of my finger

Recommended Posts

Is swollen and black. I took a really hard fall yesterday. I feel like an idiot going to the ER for a bruise on my finger. But I also don't really want to lose my finger. I had a pretty bad cut. But not horribly deep. It's not like the tip of the things dangling off or anything.

But it bled forever. 

 

Anyway, I'm assuming at some point the blood will reabsorb in my system then everything will work out. But Damn, it looks bad right now.

 

Any of you arm chair doctors want to weigh in here?

Not hot, so not infected

 I think. 

 

But no feeling at all.

Never know. Could’ve been broken. If it turns black that quick it can be concerning so no reason to feel bad about getting it looked at

Cut it off at the nearest joint.

Maybe his BT will even do it for him.

I do but just stick it all in the jar right away.

As far as I’m concerned they’re just doing their job

Yeah, black isn't a color you want to see, and it took forever to stop bleeding, no reason not to see what a doctor has to say.
