Lol, sorry mate. Depends on how much came off to how 'round' it ends up, reckon you may have a bit of a flat spot knowing roughly how thick the vegies end up. Ive had a few accidents while boning out carcasses. Usually put the flap off skin back on and hold tight and strap on. Sometimes it sticks back down within the hour, sometimes a few days later it falls off. Scars are always a good talking point though if there has to be an 'up' side to it :sad:

 

Sorry to hear though, this post made me real squirmy and I noticed I was reading with my fingers held tight into my fist haha.

:sad: Well that's what I said to Greg last night after the incident :( Gee I said the first couple of slices were on thin but then I relised and changed it to thick, boy I wished that I hadn't of relised that and left it on thin because then it would only have sliced a thin piece instead of a thick piece :angry:

You he just laughed at me. ;)

Well It could of been worse it could of being on julienne strips OUCH

You know what gets me it says CAUTION; Sharp edges, keep out of reach of children, use safety holder recommended.

Well it should read CAUTION: Sharp and deadly edges, keep out of reach of children, and when using the safety holder which is bit small make sure fingers do not hang over edges as if they do fingers may be sliced also along with your salad -_-

No my finger as sore as today and what's worse the doctor which they call doctor death :) made an 3/4hour appointment for me today at 4pm.

When I went yesterday he gave the jab in the arm, you know what I couldn't get over him because he calls mine Julie he says, so I smile and work his way, he takes me into is dungeon of death and sits me down and says with a big smile on his face " I have something for you" I say really smiling, what would that be thinking gee I am getting something good here, and to my horror he pulls out the tetanus needle, I was shocked because I hadn't even told him what I had done.

Anyway he must be money hungry because he says I haven't time to take that bandage off to day so I will make you an 3/4 hour appointment tomorrow and I will numb your finger which means more needles. :D I can do what I like with it then :fear ugggh I thought.

Plus more money :fear

So last night Greg and I tried to get it off, soak my fingers in water for ages and got it all off except the bit that is stuck to the finger bit that is missing ouch, so I covered that bit of dressing in healing cream hopefully it will soften it and I will try again today.

Because I don't want to go back to doctor death

My arm hurt from the needle all night didn't get much sleep.

God an I in the wars, I have a cold, 2 cut fingers and a sore arm and it was funny last night because I wanted a kiss to make me feel better and Greg says you have enough problems without me kissing you because you see he has a dreaded cold sore on his lip.

:D It sounds very painful, I hope it heals quickly for you! :)

 

A friend of mine cut through tendons in her hand recently with one of those canopeners that remove the lid. The big tin of beetroot she just opened was falling off the bench. She rushed to catch it, and ended up having two lots of microsurgery and months of physio - could hardly do anything for months and still has a pinky finger that wont bend properly. She told me she really wished it was the middle finger instead so that she could let the manufacturer of the can opener really know what she thought! She had fun telling the physio that she injured her hand pole dancing! I guess what I'm saying is that it can seem bad at the time, but hopefully it will heal quickly, and you can use it as your next topic of conversation at a party. :fear

I urge you to go back to the doctor. Your wound - being so bad - could become infected & if that happens . . .

At least under a doctors care you can have access to immediate aid should anything happen to it.

Yeah, I agree with Karen. Watch that it doesn't get infected, because it is quite a large surface area to have open and it's close to the bone.

 

Woah. I just finished reading this post, then flipped tabs onto my 2nd favourite website and saw this. I immediately thought of you Splat.

 

Here's the censored version (sorry and also thank you Griffon Ramsey and Luke Mckay)

Not very very happy at the moment :angry: in more pain than ever :fear just feeling like swearing that's how much it hurts, have to back Monday morning 9.30 for him to redress it, god no wonder they call him doctor death :fear , I nearly had a coronary when he pulled the rotten bandage off could nearly scrapped me off the floor.

What an expensive little toy cost me only $15.00 I thought what a bargain, well now to doctor visits later and more to come.
