30 Bananas a Day!

Will this be fine? Something metal came out of a rusty barrel I was pulling out of tall grass and hit me in the leg, I'm not going to get some crazy infection that will lead to amputation if I don't use alcohol or something to disinfect it right? I just rinsed it with water and put a gauss over it and tape to hold it

Freelee has a story of getting  deep wound and healing it. I remember her saying she washed it using salt water multiple times a day. Try to find her blog or video she posted or talk to her.

so i dont need stitches? :D i really dont want to have to get them if i dont have too XD im sure itd heal up faster but idk

I think it might be a good idea to get stitches. They are no big deal. Just don't take antibiotics if they prescribe it for you. You don't need the antibiotics. If you are really opposed to the stiches then be sure to clean it properly. Maybe see if you can google information on wound/cut cleaning and how to care for a wound/cut.

No one can really judge if you need stitches or not just from your description, you should go to a nurse or doctor and ask if you are at all unsure. 

Get plenty of Vitamin K, grapes :3

that's pretty gnarly.  

I'd definitely get it looked at and likely stitched or medically glued (don't do this yourself)

I don't advocate tetanus shots, due to a bad experience myself and knowing what's in vaccines, but you may be pressured to get one.

Use your own educated judgement.  Whatever treatment upon which you decide, keep a close eye on the wound, and take further action if you notice any abnormal redness, heat or inflamed veins stretching away from the injury.  That could equal infection and is not something to be messed around with.  Get immediate help in such a case. 

In the meantime, sleep as much as possible, hydrate like it's your job, and eat simply.  

Heal well, Nathan!

thanks! my dad keeps insisting itll be fine, the picture looks alot worse than it really is, its not too terribly opened, ill probably just let it heal up as is and see how it goes, while keeping it clean and watching for any signs of anything unusual lol. ill post another pic in a week of how its coming along:D

I had a deep cut.  I let it bleed for a while to clean out anything bad and then closed it up with my clean fingers then applied super glue to keep it closed.  It healed fine.  The Doc would use medicated super glue.  

You don't need to go to the doctor now, but you do need to go if there are signs of infection.  Plenty of super healthy, tropics-living, fruit-eating people died horribly painful deaths from infected wounds before modern medical care.  Our immune system was intended to work with our skin intact, not with big gaping holes in it.  I've healed some really nasty cuts myself, but I did monitor them closely and would've gone to a doctor if I thought an infection was spreading.

Months progress! Zero stitches! Lol. Doesn't look right XD

At least it's closed.

One thing to research I recently heard about but haven't confirmed is to rub vitamine E oil into the scar to lessen its appearance.  Worth some study.

Try doterra's or young living brand lemon essential oil
My husband had emergency open heart surgery 3 months ago. He got MRSA in a surgical inscision on his leg which was just as scary as the emer. heart surgery. The other inscision on his leg started to open and looked infected. I rinsed it with aloe juice and put a drop of lemon oil on the wound 3x a day and it worked beautifully! PS, MRSA is an antibiotic resistant bacteria that essential oils kill. Check the doterra or young living website for a local person to buy from. Those brands ate certified pure and safe to ingest in small amounts. It's only about $10. The aloe is a good idea to, it helps with cell renewal. Good luck! Keep us posted
