Can you get stitches on the inside of your lip? (pic included) **UPDATE**
DH forget he wasn't young anymore and played a game of football with our son and his friends. DH got knocked in the mouth with someone's head and gashed his lower lip open. This happened around 3:30 this afternoon and it bled for a long time. It stopped bleeding but if he talks, drinks from a straw or closes his mouth it starts to bleed again. DH's blood sugars are also 280 right now (he is diabetic). So, is it worth it to go to the ER? Can they put stitches on the inside of your lip?
DH went to our local ER and the doc said that it was a deep cut but that they can't put stitches in a mouth. Hmmm... my DH questioned him on it and he tells him he can go somewhere else for a second opinion. Doc didn't seem concerned about DH having high blood sugars, said that happens when you get injuried.
I think DH will get a second opinion in the morning. This is the same hospital that said our infant DD had colic and not even 12 hours later she was admitted to the NICU at the Children's hospital.
Thank you for the advice, it was greatly appreciated!!
