Well… here I am… in A&E!
I was there last night over the bars shot neck cracked on landing and was winded for a few mins then rode down trail home to mrs who ordered me to A&E spent an hour and half waiting to be seen and was given all clear. Neck checked okay with bruised ribs but leg is dead (I have to lift it into car etc) aches and pains all over but ok. Sounds though I am better off than you Dr p.Posted 3 years ago
Was out on a lovely bivvy night -cracking spot, fire roaring -perfect.
Quite why I decided to pass a razor sharp blade through the top of my index finger I’ll never know…!
Just waiting to be assessed – my professional optimistic verdict is just a big bleeding cut.
My pessimistic verdict is I’ve chuffed the tendon…
Movement mostly OK, but shall wait and see!
Some of the chaps got some good photos – not for the squeamish :-/
Pics inline further down, if you are squeamish turn back now.

Great article here about using SuperGlue to close wounds such as the one above. Key points are:
1) The wound needs to be cleaned first! So not ideal out on a bivvy trip.
2) It’s better to use the proper medical stuff, as it is less likely to cause irritation.
3) If you are using it on someone else, beware of litigation! (It is an American website, but prob still relevant over here)
There are other things as well, such as its not good on jagged wounds or animal bites etc.Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
Re: shermer75’s link about using superglue, I use it regularly on cuts and suchlike, but I’m damned if I’d try using it on a cut like that, that would sting like hell!Posted 3 years ago
The other problem is that continual bleeding stops the glue from setting properly as it oozes out of the cut.
Still, at least it was a nice sharp knife, and a really clean cut, it will leave a nice thin scar. 😀
 just read that link, and it does say not to use superglue on: deep wounds, wounds that are bleeding, so my instinct was the right one.
