Out riding today and front wheel flipped up a massive
tree branch stick, one end the said stick hit my shin bone the other end dug into the forest floor, then there was an almighty SNAP! and a rush of pain in my leg. First thoughts were I'd broken my leg but after hopping about swearing like a bad un I realised it was the stick that snapped not my leg. On closer inspection there was a massive piece of timber in under my skin.
went home to get rid of the bike, Mrs B said she'd have ago with a stanley blade and a set of her eyebrow tweezers, after a brief discussion i told her to f'cough!
So off to A&E I went
after a X-ray to confirm no bone damage, I was given a local anesthetic to make me comfortably numb.
After a bit of slicing and more local anesthetic by Dr Jen with the scalpel the large stick was free. 1 stitch a few steri strips and a huge box of antibiotics I was on my way after 3.5hrs.
Nothing but praise for all the staff in ARI 1st class treatment no complaints at all.
A few arseholes in the waiting room who really should've been booted out tho.
