To stitch or not to stitch?

saipan machete fightI got in a machete fight today and then bled all over an undisclosed bathroom owned by Tan Holdings. It wasn't too bad once I stopped bleeding. Anyway, I've always wanted to see the inside of my own finger. So, should I get stitches or will this heal on its own?

You should be more worried about a tetanus shot.

Some MD's might stitch, some might just apply Dermabond and steri-strip it, depends.

You should have seen the other guy after Angelo got done with him using the tweezers from his penknife.

Do a YouTube video tutorial on how to stitch your own cuts and sew it up yourself...OUCH!

My friend's mom was a nurse and swore by things called "butterfly bandages" or something close to that.

I would second the tetanus shot.

Hope you heal soon.

That is gross ANgelo! You should have some kind of warning before we sensitive viewers see this...lol...it will heal on it's own...neosporin works real well! and cover that thing!

Better yet, have Oreo pee on it while you are getting that tetnus shot.

Gaping wounds usually require stitches, Dude. And update your tetanus. It's cheaper to do this now, than deal with the fall-out.

I'll go look for a tetanus shot tomorrow. Where is a good place to get one? Is CHC the only place?

Is this injury going to cut down on your sex life, Angelo?
