Ouch! :crybaby:

One of my former workmates lost three fingers on his right hand while using spinning chains to trip pipe on a rig several years ago.

cheers for your comments guys!!! :)

just got back from hospital.....in a sh!t load of pain and have a massive zig-zag scar down the length of my finger.

it turned out i had severed my central extensor tendon (central slip) and the glass had actually entered the joint and caused some minor damage!! :o had the operation done under local anasthetic, so i was fully awake throughout it all......quite surreal!!!

gotta keep my finger in a splint for 4-6 weeks, then need physio to hopefully make the finger work 'normally'!!!

hope it'll all heal well :) :)

Bloody hell pal, hope you're ok, sounds like it will be a while before you'll be back to normal!

Hope it all goes well anyway, will get you a jiffy bag off this week, dunno if you'll be able to use it now though :o

I nearly threw up when I saw that pic earlier on in the thread, nearly posted the pic of my op this year but it's nothing compared to that :sick:
