If you have lost a segment of the finger, and you still have that segment (e.g. the finger was severed at a joint), the pack the missing bit in ice, and go to the hospital immediately (with the missing bit) - every minute counts if there is any hope of sewing the missing part back on.

If it is only that you chopped off a small piece of flesh, but no loss of bone, then you have to seek medical advice to make sure that the wound is treated properly, but you will probably not grow back the missing bit, but you have to make the wound is treated properly so that it does not get infected and causing the requirement for amputation.

I thought i was going to see total mutalation :)or at least a tipless finger.

Put a plaster on it if it wont stop bleeding or leave it bear so it hardens then give it two weeks and it should have grown back.

.....Then don't do that chummy !!

I can tell that the piccy does not do it justice and that the cut is quite severe !....allow it to dry.....though you might want to apply some antiseptic cream or something !.....if it does start bleeding ewe need to apply pressure ....wrap up in a bandage and squeeze !!.(doctors...please corroborate)


LOL..I said the same excuse when I was caught wearing my sisters stockings and suspenders and ballroom dress !!....DOH !!!!

I was going to say the same thing about the electric hair crimper.....BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.....There now your finger won't hurt so bad because everything else will!!!!!! LOL

Really Ryan, you whacked a good size chunk off the side. I suspect a good portion will grow back over it and help balance it up some.. just keep it clean.. You might need a tetnus shot. What did you cut it on old knife new knife.. something with raw meat on it.. clean it well...rusty tin etc...???

Sorry Ryan about your finger.. I know it hurts, thats a nice size chunk of flesh gone!

Oh Yeah before I forget. Today it is a medium pain contantly. And once in a while a sharp one. Yesterday it was no pain, then SUPER sharp.

This normal?

I am glad you should get some layers back as it heals, but like neal said it probably will stay scared.. You should now have a very definite and Identifiable fingerprint so be a good boy! LOL
