couldn't come with a witty caption to this photo of my arm.

apparently the plate attached to the broken radius is doing a great job, unfortunately my wound isn't healing up too well, so I'm stuck with these gruesome clips for at least another week

It looks like they've installed a zip! I hope it heals properly soon. Can't be very pleasant waling around with an arm full of staples.

it looks rather gruesome, but on the plus side . . . erm, actually I don't think there is a plus side

I guess I could scare kids and steal their candy??

that is horrendous - the plus side is the plate is doing it's job - if it wasn't....

Sprocket says:

the plus side is that I'll have an awesome scar . . . and a suitably awesome (totally fabricated) tale to tell about how I got it

Actually, for a stapled incision, it looks really good, not much inflammation, nice clean edges and staple holes. This from a survivor of a 10 inch abdominal incision that was stapled back together and didn't heal cleanly. Now that it's getting air it may heal faster Sprocket, I hope so.

omg, omg, omg......your poor arm !
Your injury must have been really bad, aren't we lucky that we can have ourselves fixed and that soon you will be as good as new..... those times when you want to swap 'whose got the worst scar' tales, well you will win xx

That looks really awful and painful. So what large thing will you have gotten in a fight with when you fabricate your story? Sending healing vibes by the way.

MaggieD says:

OMG, I hope what Silar says is the case, and it heals rapidly, lots of love and healing vibes from me ...

22nd Jan 2010, 19:33
