Thread: My Insingo finally bit me....bad *Stitches Picture*

    My Insingo finally bit me....bad *Stitches Picture*


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Was stripping some large mcm copper wires today, in a hurry to get a generator going for a local telephone company and the wire slipped out of my left hand and my right hand slide up across my Insingo, slicing a good chunk out of my right thumb...I am right handed...

    A quick trip to the ER and 7 stitches later.

    Those numbing shots were the worse part...

    Hoping you heal up quick! I can really empathize with you. Base of my right thumb is still a little tender some 6 weeks after my little mishap!! On the brighter side, you know ... a knife can be considered truly yours once it's tasted your blood!

    Did they stick the needle through your finger and pierced the inside of your skin on the other side of your finger?
    I REALLY dislike that feeling... but this anaesthetic is good stuff - it's worse it it doesn't numb the entire finger and if it's too late to redo it...

    And I hope you'll heal fast - especially since it's the right one :-/

    Judging from that nice slice the large insingo is great for kitchenduties
    ;-)

    My small one made me miss a nice bit of the top of my right thumb closing it a bit too fast without paying to much attention:-(

    This is what scares me the most about being such a knife nut. Honestly, I am the biggest wuss when it omens to stuff like that. I stabbed my palm once trying to cut open a hotdog hoagie bun and the knife went about 3/4 through my hand. The freaking local hurt like a MOFO and I wanted to knock the doctor out.
    How your thumb heals up quickly.

    Hope you heal quickly! The worst part is that is the thumb that you would use to open the Insingo which means you can't play with it for a while!!

    Oh man, I can feel your pain through the pics. Ouch!!! Hopefully, the endorphins kicked in to numb the pain.

    Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!

    Work is pretty hard with only one thumb....atleast there isn't any pain right now.

    Luckily my Insingo has double thumbstuds so I can still play!

    I believe this Insingo has def claimed me. We are joined now....
