Had another check up today just before I had the stitches removed. The Doctor said it is looking good but I am still at risk of losing the tip of my ring finger if an infection sets in the bone.

In a lot more pain with the stitches removed and I am not happy about the smell or fluid leaking from my hand. The new bandages are the same as the old ones.


I am due to have the wire removed in 2 weeks as it was not ready at this checkup. So no riding or driving for at least another 3 weeks.
That second digit looks like it's got some necrosis around the sutures, keep an eye on it or you may lose that finger tip too, good luck on the healing

Yeah most of that is dried blood and a bit of dead flesh. No infections at this time so it should be alright. Stitches are out now so I am being very careful with the way I move my fingers around. Having stitches removed is not a pleasant feeling, especially when they are as long and deep as these were.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Are they using Iodosorb on the wounds? That's what they put on my open part of my foot to keep infection away and draw out the crap. I'd ask for it if you can, it really works. I still have my foot because of it.

I have not heard of that but I will mention it to the hand clinic on Tuesday when I go in. Thanks for the tip!


As Seen on TV! :P

Hmm not sure if that one would work on this occasion. If I run out of options it might be worth a try!


Thanks again for all the well wishes guys. I will upload some more pictures on Tuesday after the next appointment.

Keep pushing on. Being stubborn goes a long way. I still have my own foot because I'm stobborner than shit.

Had stitches three times in my life. Cut myself bad enough to bleed out as a 3 year old, don't remember those. Luckily pops came to the rescue. Had Tommy John surgery twice, I remember having those pulled out quite well. Not pleasant at all.

This was after the first one. Had one stitch that ran long ways all the way across. Hurt like a mf'er when they pulled it out. Second surgery, they just reopened that scar. Up top, is where they cut a tendon out of my forearm/wrist to replace my UCL with.

Well looks like I will have to have the tip of my finger removed. Operation is at 11am tomorrow. It looks as if I have an infection around where the bone would have been healing.
Here is a photo of the X-Ray and I have circled the are that the doctor has told me appears to be the issue. The bright white area in the bone is the issue, along with the amount of brown fluid leaking out of it.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Sucks, but if that spreads it could be a lot worse.  I worried about the same for months with the foot/leg. 3 bouts of Antibiotics seemed to work but your infection looks like it is in the bone not on it and I doubt they would work for you.

Yikes. Hopefully that'll be the worst of it.

On the bright side, think of all the time you'll save clipping your nails now ;):P
