yesterday I was cutting up a bunch of potatoes. My hand slipped and the fatty part of the hand under the pinky hit the blade of the knife by the handel really hard. It cut about a 1 inch wide deep gash. The cut isnt realy bothering me, but there is a goose egg under the cut, it it really bruised and my pinky is very weak, and the whole thing hurts to my wrist..there is no infection, but it really hurts...someone said I may have cut something, and someone else said I might have broken my hand...taking a poll...
UPDATE***** Good thing I went because I had an infection brewing already. Dr said I nicked the bone, got a tetnus shot, they are good for 10 years but if you get hurt after 5 they want to booster you. Got some antibiotics and wrapped it up for me..now if I just had someone to kiss my booboo for me, lol
