Thread: Cut from a can lid!

    Default Cut from a can lid!

    I know this came up a while back. And now it happened. We were in a hurry.
    Been out shopping for hours. Came in with food from Taco Time. Both
    hungry. Cats wanted to eat. Told daughter to feed them while I put some
    stuff away.

    It all happened so quickly! She was opening the can. Wellness brand. Pop
    top lid. Blood everywhere. Seems like a huge cut. Doesn't want to stop
    bleeding. Finally told her to eat her dinner as best she can. Food is cold
    now. I have to eat. Seeing as how I have diabetes and our dinner is much
    delayed, wouldn't be safe for me to drive until I do.

    And then? Prolly going to the hospital unless buy some miracle the bleeding
    has stopped. Been about an hour now. Gah

    That's a nasty wound and you do need to get 'real' care - but now - close
    the cut as best you can and apply a plain old wet tea bag. Get some help
    from a neighbor. A frightened diabetic mama is NOT a good driver. Polly

    Bleeding for an hour sounds dangerous, especially with the amount of blood
    you described. You should get some food (anything!!) fast, and then get
    Angela to the hospital ASAP. Don't waste time on the newsgroup. And be
    sure to ask about a tetanus shot unless you are sure her boosters are
    up-to-date. Please keep us updated.

    I know it's late in the game but you need to apply pressure to the wound
    with as clean a material you have, preferably gauze pads. An hour of
    bleeding is a lot and the wound probably needs stitches. If I were worried
    about a low I'd make a quick sandwhich and then hot the road.

    Good luck

    If it bled that long and that much you still need to take her to the
    doctor. My sister cut her hand real badly on broken glass. The
    bleeding stopped but she had to have surgery on her hand to remove the
    scar tissue that had built up around and inside the wound.

    Eeew. That doesn't sound good! I don't know that it bled a lot. It just
    kept bleeding whenever she took pressure off of it. She does also tend to
    panic when she sees a little bit of blood.

    Did you put a pressure bandage on it? Works for me for really bad knife
    cuts but yeah, they can take awhile to stop. Especially long shallow
    cuts that cut across a lot of capillaries.

    Hope you are better!

    Just a suggestion, but if you have to eat before you can drive safely,
    keep an MRE handy--tastes like crap and may not be particularly good for
    you but it's a balanced meal sufficient to keep a soldier going for a
    day, you can eat it cold out of the package, and they'll keep for 10
    years if you store them in a cool place. Just the thing for an
    emergency.

    In fairness..... she said that it was still bleeding after an hour.



    I few years ago I cut my finger while preparing dinner. I probably
    should have gone to the ER for stitches. I put a nice tight bandage on
    it and saved myself a trip. The next day I figured it might be a good
    idea to get it checked out. I stopped to visit my mother on the way to
    the hospital and finally got to the ER around 1 pm. The nurse asked me
    what made me think I didn't need stitches when it happened. Truth
    is.... I had had a couple drinks and should not have been driving... or
    handling sharp knives.... and I had a leg of lamb on the BBQ that was
    ready to serve.

    A doctor looked at it and said it was too late to stitch. They put some
    ointment and a dressing on it. As it turned out, it healed better than
    previous finger gashes that had been stitched.

    I don't even know what a pressure bandage is! But a regular bandage is what
    stopped the bleeding. I kept trying to put one on there but she would see
    the blood and yank her hand back. Apparently telling her to hold it up, and
