Yep, smarts bit.Posted 8 years ago
i do realise though that if i was a typical “ard-as-sh1te” notherner i’d just splash a bit of old spice or blue stratos on it, pull my sock back on, and go ride, but being a soft midlander, went to a and e , and got it dressed. nearly had to cut my stealths off: that would have been a disaster!
Getting bored now, keeping foot up.
did my last training ride early thursdy morning ready for an event this saturday, all went well until brewing up in the tent for a cup of tea after. Had taken my riding shoes off tp protect the groundsheet, when i managed to juggle the kettle ( unsuccesfully and spill half a litre of boiling water on my foot)
Docs reckon i may just be fit for mayhem if all goes well.

Make sure you post it to MBUK, they like such pics (but change the story to: I was hucking 390ft gap over the canyon in West Somalia when my brake hose exploded and the boiling hot brake oil went onto my foot. It hurt as **** but I still cleared the gap throwing a Superman 360 inverted onefooter.Posted 8 years ago

fuikun hell m8 that looks sore , my advise would be salt water soulution with added lemon juice and soak , for aproxx 1.5 milly second that should sort it , oh and a set of new hiking boots , dun up good n tight , really keep it clean mate , get better soon. also what hairy saidPosted 8 years ago
had it redresed again today, looking ok, but i think i may have to change my forum name to “christhatstingslikefeck” after they cleaned it with saline.
it’s buzzing away nicely now, but that’s kind of a good thing, cos the last thing you wnat with a burn is one so deep htat it doesn’t hurt.
Advice from the doc was if i id it agian ( WHY THE **** WOULD I DO IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!) to find the bits of skin from inside my sock, clean thoroughly in saline, and replace over thesurface of the wound, as it’s the best thing to seal the wound with as it heals.
Biggest issue is i’ve jsut realised that cos i’m no longer gonna be able to put in the 12 hours a week minimum riding that i was, in prep for my 24 solo debut, i’ve gotta cut about 9-10,000 calories a week from my current diet or i’ll turn into Lisa Riley! So i can’t even hit the munchies while i’m sat here bored stupid!Posted 8 years ago
had a few nasty burns on teh same leg before….got a numb patch where i suffered some nerve damage after a kick from a horse on honeymoon (dont ask….we have strange nuptual traditions where we come from!) and was using that leg to nudge a classic racing motorcyle onto a stand between races. old fashioned air cooled engines and red hot low level exhaust pipes. Didn’t realise until after the race in the shower and all the skin fell off that side of my calf! Took me a while to realise what had happened. Only then did i find the holes melted in the synthetic riding jeans i had been wearing! Doh!Posted 8 years ago
is there a significant difference in the nature of the tissue damage caused?
this injury seem sfairly even thicknessed over a large area
As you’ve tested scalds tend to be fairly spread and not that deep unless there’s submersion into the liquid or a long flow.
Burns tend to be localised for obvious reasons but depending on temperature can get deep quicker and more often than scalds.
Most common burn we see is this time of year when people light BBQs and fires with the potential bomb that is Petrol. Never ever use petrol to light anything even more so in confined spaces, KABOOOOOOOOOOOOM! “Ahhhh! my eyebrows, fringe, nose and ears.”Posted 8 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
gives me a chance to relay a story of my uncle about a nasty scald he incurred through ridiculous means.
He’d bust his lower leg playing football and was in an old style plaster cast. Like a cock, he decided against his wife’s advice to have a bath, resting the foot up on the taps. Except he fell asleep momentarily and the plaster fell in the water.
Afeard of what the reaction would be he hit on the ‘great’ idea of drying it off with her hairdryer. All seemed good until he noticed it getting quite hot. So he took the hairdryer away – only to realise it was the water in the plaster that had got hot, and taking the hairdryer off … made no difference at all.
Imagine a scald where you can’t take the heat source away!!! On top of a broken leg.
He’s a legend, my uncle.Posted 8 years ago
