Got Stiches?

Curious how many other people have had to have stiches.....

I was working the produce section of a huge supermarket. I had many friends working there. One guy, a friend of min, was kind of a jerk. I said something to him and that pissed him off so he came over, got a little knife out and was cutting my apron off. I tried to reach up to grab his wrist but he was slashing down as I was reaching up and he caught my left ring finger. I yellow "Owww!" and knew he had cut me very deep. I went over to the sink to wash the blood and the wound and well, all my nerves were exposed and it felt like someone had poured acid on my finger.
My jerky friend drove me over to the local ER. My finger was bleeding pretty bad but I kept pressure on it. A few times I looked at the wound and thought I saw the bone.
Since I was bleeding pretty bad, I was let into the main doors to the ER. I got a small pan full of betadyne and had my whole hand in the liquid.
I sat on a gurney and watched many badly hurt people go back and forth along with the ER staff.
After about 15 minutes, since I had an open wound and there was no pressure on it, I was bleeding out into the pan and it was getting to the point of over flowing from my own blood.
I asked someone where I could dump some of this out and well.....they forgot about me and so I was next in line.

I had two veins tied off and 12 stitches.....

Are YOU talking to me?

Re: Got Stiches?

I haven't had stitches, but I fractured my left ankle (in three places) in December of 2002.

My parent's driveway is about a 45º angle and there was snow on top of ice. Near the middle of it, I slipped and my left foot bend on its side. Ouch. I had to have surgery and three screws put in to reform the fractured areas. Today, two of the three screws still are in place. I was out of work for 2-months. That was no fun.

Re: Got Stiches?

I got hit in the face with a piece of 2x4. The edge corner of the board landed at the bridge of my nose. And blood came out, and it was like a faucet. All I could see was red, because I had to keep my head looking up to the sky because it wouldn’t stop. This was at high school and it was for a class project video. (Not get hit in the face with a 2x4, but for a project for our economics class.) It was so long ago. And then I got like 12 stitches

Re: Got Stiches?

I've got a total of about 20 stitches.

Most recent was about 3 years ago. I dropped a glass candy dish on a wooden desk and it broke- I tried to clean it up and didn't notice that there was a piece of glass IN the wood, so I sliced 3 fingers. Got 10 stitches that time - 2 on my pointer finger, 5 on my middle finger and 3 on my ring finger.

When I was in 8th grade I was playing volleyball during gym and i jumped up to hit the ball and so did another girl- well, she slammed into my face and I had a necklace that jumped up at the same time and it cut me right under my eye - 5 stitches there. Good thing was that the dr was AWESOME and even if you TRY to see the scar, you can't.(Also put Vitamin E on it!)

When I was 3 years old I was running on wooden floor with socks (smart) AND my brother tried to trip me, sending me sliding into the legs of a wooden diningroom table- right smack in the middle of my forehead I got cut- another 5 stitches there.

Thats it for me.

8 stiches in wrist after trying to catch a glass as it fell and broke as and pressed in to catch it (missed artery by about 1/2 cm), fat and shit was popping out of the cut was fully through the skin

1 stich in the head after a gocart accident

5 STAPLES in the head after my brother through a rock at me when i was like 5

1 stich in my lip after my brother shot me in the mouth with a BB gun, knocked one of my front teeth out and the bb went through my lip then back and stayed in my lip (till they cut it out, where the stitch came from)

Re: Got Stiches?

Nothing too major here.

Two on my left eyelid from when I hit a sharp corner on a coffee table when I was about 3.

Two near the bridge of my nose from, believe it or not, hitting the exact same corner of said coffee table about a year later. Even harder to believe that we still kept the coffee table. Heh.

Three on the bottom of my right foot after stepping on remnants of a broken pudding cup when I was about 9.

Not technically stitches, but I had a bunch of staples on my left side after kidney surgery when I was 16. Makes it look like I was in some sort of knife fight...and lost.

Re: Got Stiches?

Yeah, I have them above my right ear. When I have long hair you can't see them, but when its buzzed, you can see them somewhat.
