handy to be behind you should (hope you never) need them after an accident.:smoke:

Boring. No pix. Here's some. My leg after my Husky SMR backfired...Since this is a thread about sutures I'll spare you the blood and gore.Unzipped it all the way up the shin. Not much blood but the sutures kept letting go. They then told me if the skin didn't heal I might lose the leg! I stopped riding the bike for a week...Screwd.

when you say backfired you mean when the kickstart springs back?No boots on?, I did that on my NSR250 once and it fucking killed although it only left a lump on the shin, not rip it open

It was late at night and I was the only one left working in an East London bike shop. Hot so I was wearing shorts/trainers. Only started it to test the lights. Yes it backfired.Ouch.Screwd.

Looks like a paper cut to me.

WAIF how's your leg these days?go on show the pics again!!double dare you

my kick start lever has a swivel foot peg thing which is broken and is now removable. once i kicked it, backfired and the footpeg flew off. right up to my face and int the helmet as my visor was up, belted off the bone on the outside of my eye. do not know how it never cut or bruised but i was in agony and couldnt see. could have lost my eye! noone really see the kick start lever as the whore to danger it really is

I can see the wound having difficulty healing. I can also testify that some injuries can lead to amputation. However, I think there is some great big gap between the skin not healing on your leg and the need for amputation. Unless of course your doctor is practicing at a level equal to that of field surgeons in combat prior to the discovery of antibiotics. It looks as if your skin, in addtion to getting opened, also got a good hammer blow to the surrounding tissue creating damage to it such that it was a poor candidate for suturing. I wasn't there so my room to criticise is certainly limited. Cleaning, debriding, dressing the wound may have been appropriate initial management with delaying closure until the skin and exposed tissue bed were healthy.

It's funny you mention that cos one of my brothers had a lump of concrete scrape down his leg and cut it.He got it stitched up but then all the surrounding tissue kind of fell off, made a right mess considering there was only three stitches there in the first place.Sounds like the same thing.Oh and Waif? I thought the PDF was worth downloading and you never know, it might be of use if I remember some of it, Ta muchly

Quite right, I think they were simply trying to scare me. Mind you, it was summertime and I was working as a bike instructor next day. Wearing leathers the wound just got soaked and softened to the point everything just tore open. Itchy as buggery and I don't think the leather cocktail helped!For those unfamiliar witht the Husky SM570R, it has a left hand kickstart so you stand to one side, off the bike and jump on it with your right foot...This is the bugger:Screwd.

Burn the bastard thing.

Nope. Sold the fuck out of it. Miss it terribly but made a fortune out of it.Screwd.

As did your surgeon. :burnout:

Lol, yeah, twice. In the sutures vs. stitches thing (getting back to the thread), I vote for sutures every time. I mean y'know sometimes when you break a bone or have a nasty wound, the pain is so bad it just dulls itself? Well, that doesn't always happen...Imagine you just accidentally hammered your shin; a gentle breeze wafting over the skin can hurt. I can't tell you what it's like when they stick a needle in it and stitch it up. A lot doesn't really do it justice. Only a nasty scratch at the end of the day, don't want to start a bidding war - not here!Exquisite pain though. Sometimes when it's that bad; I get a fit of the giggles. Crazy.Screwd.
