    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.

    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 :-/

    <MOD EDIT>
    Pics inline further down, if you are squeamish turn back now.

    Good luck to all who have new scars for Easter! Zombie Jesus blessings.

    That’s a very good ‘I just slipped with the knife’ effort. Well done.

    I’d argue that was more like the bottom of your finger. The top infers towards the nail. Depends which you hold it up I suppose.

    Good effort nonetheless

    Just by the Knuckle it ‘curls upwards’ very close to the tendon!
    Went through the fascia all the way down…
    Mora knives are VERY sharp…

    My dog is very pleased you posted that picture of the cut. He has just been tossed the slice of marmite toast that I no longer felt like eating. πŸ˜₯

    Ouch!
    Can only sympathise having done something similar many years ago with an axe!

    That area will be tender for many a year to come, especially on cold, frosty days πŸ™„

    Packing up your kit must have been a bit of a ball ache! Oh well, at least you’ve got a good story to tell out if it!

    Proper Job that, be nice when it’s finished πŸ˜†

    However I do question you Bivvi motivation, clearly you were in a different part of the South Down when the monsoon hit ??

    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.

    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!
    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. πŸ˜€
    [edit] 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.

    You’re a doctor and yet you went to a hospital?
    Disappointed. πŸ˜‰
    I always assumed you chaps did your own surgery. Seems daft queuing up with everyone else.

    wow.

    not glueable imo. most things can be bodged with average bike kit, but its stuff like that reminds me why there are steristrips, to hold you together for the ride home.

    dont play with knives kids.
