I watched so much ER I'm basically a doctor.
The white tendons sure stick out?
They will have to graft skin to cover this up, but the wound is very clean, so I suppose that is good news.
NOD is a ER doctor, so he probably uses the word frequently in his work.
Are those tendons or his metatarsals?
Nasty. I'd probably sit there and stare at it and wiggle my toes all day. And, of course, worry about losing my foot.
That's it? From reading your guys comments you I was thinking he was going to have a a few gaping holes through his foot, or all of it hanging from the bone or something. The dude lost some flesh. Not that huge of a deal. Nancys
Yep. There's clearly no gaping hole in his foot.
Walk it off, you pussy.
Luckily, there's not a lot of muscle on the superficial aspect of the dorsum of a foot (just have a look at how much your tendons show through on the tops of your feet). I'm no plastics guy, but I'd imagine that, once he gets more wound care, they're sure that there is no more tissue to debride, and he has good granulation, he should be able to just get a split-thickness skin graft to the open area, rather than needing a flap.
His days as a foot model would be over, but he shouldn't have functional impairment.
I assume you are correct, but what makes the tendons not susceptible to the venom infection? I assumed it was bone because I just assume bone is more resistant. But I have no idea what I am talking about.
So what was Bear Grylls field recommendation? rub some dirt on it and hope you don't get diarrhea?
Bear's recommendations was "holy shit I'm a douchenozzle let's get out of here and try to profit from the pictures later!"
Ok, I'll bite. Why is Bear Grylls such a douche?
He wakes up English.
Tendons have a sheath overlying them that actually give them some pretty good protection, assuming there wasn't direct inoculation by one of the fangs. The tendon exposure for this one may be enough that they could conceivably choose to do a muscle flap in order to decrease the likelihood of long-term functional damage.
Again, I haven't done plastics since my plastics rotation about a billion years ago.
I speak conversational Polish. Vowels are overrated.
I believe he's generally considered a fraud who stages the situations and places he's in.
He doesn't really make much effort to claim otherwise. Doesn't the disclaimer on the show basically say something to that effect?
thanks, that's intriguing.
He pronounces vitamins as 'vit-uh-mens'
Haven't watched his show in years, so I have no idea. I just seem to recall a small uproar when one of his segments was proven to be total bullshit a few years ago.
basically yeah, it says he'll show situations.
but if any one says survivorman is better ugh.
I was bitten by a rattlesnake. It was gross and painful.
Pease share more.
On a college hiking trip, I leaned against a rock without looking and got tagged on my forearm. I hoped for a dry bite, but after about ten minutes my saliva tasted metallic and I began to feel dizzy. My friends helped me down to a ranger station, where someone radioed ahead to the nearest hospital; they were ready with antivenom by the time I arrived. I don't think I was ever in mortal danger, especially with care so close at hand, but the pain felt imported from another dimension. I've had my fair share of boyhood injuries, but this lapped the field.
I developed compartment syndrome, which is basically uncontrolled tissue swelling, and underwent a fasciotomy (likely the procedure performed on the Bear Grylls producer). My arm didn't look as bad as that, but it was strange to peer into it like I was Hollow Man. Recovery wasn't so bad, and I have a full range of motion restored. The only lingering effects are a scar and a depleted bank account: doctors administered 11 vials of CroFab, at nearly $1,000 each. Oof.
