    One of my coolest looking leg scars yet

    Riding in the wet last night, kinda slippery, and I slipped off the trail into a branch or something.

    Anyway, I like this one, kinda looks like an old-school racing stripe.

    If you're going to use tequila, switch from lemons to limes and add a dash salt.

    Edit: seriously, that looks like you fought off a bobcat.

    On the pain scale of 1-10 (10 being worst) how did it rate?

    Those aren't scars.

    Yet.

    You may want to add this to your shower regimen for the next couple of days.

    I learned the peroxide issue when I was bit by a dog. lot of things you cannot do with a dog bite. hardly a scar, just a dark patch and a bumpy area.

    That is gonna be a cool scar!

    Iíll see your branch scrape, and raise you my edge of a houseboat deck shin bash. Scars are cool!

    I got poked in the back of my leg, by a stick I assume, on a local trail while helping a fellow rider with heat exhaustion walk his bike out.

    Not sure what was on that stick, but the wound got infected and turned into a pus-filled bubble. I got fever, chills and swollen lymph nodes in my groin.

    The "scar" that was left over is on an inner layer of skin, and feels like a hole in that layer about the diameter of a dime.

    Clean those wounds, peeps.

    Well what doesn't kill you, well hope it doesn't kill you.

    Years ago I got a nasty staph infection from a tiny scratch on my knee. Chills 103 fever. went to the ER. Got to spend 2 glorious nights in the hospital. It is crazy the severe wounds and don't know how many stitches I have had and it's the little ones that get you.

    My BIL is a wound care specialist. I can ask him for some pix if you'd like. I think he mostly deals with surgical wounds.

    I'll take a pic and post it of how this has healed up so far. (Hint, the stitches didn't take) Just have to wait for him to get home from school

    Dislocated shoulder.

    In my ten years of motocross in my twenties-early thirties, I broke both arms, both legs, 1 wrist and I dislocated shoulder (not all at once, these injuries were spread out over the years).

    Nothing came close to the pain of a shoulder joint hanging out of it's socket, and your arm behind your back where it doesn't belong.

    Interesting.

    I have very foggy memories of being asked if I wanted more morphine in the ICU after my TBI, I'll bet that was an 11, lol!

    That's 'cause it's amazing how many sensory nerves pass through the shoulder. You can use peroxide on a wound, once or twice. Frequent use kills the tissue, so impeded healing.

    I don't know if it was a 10, but that rice grain-sized kidney stone hurt like a mofo rambling through my urinary tract.

    None of it compares to passing a kidney stone, worse than child birth, or so the ambo's told me.

    Yeah, I've never had one but I've heard they are way up there. My wife had one and when we got to the ER, she was made top priority. Just as we were taken back into the ER, she had to go and they gave her a strainer and it passed. We were dismissed in what I am certain was a world record for going in and then out of an ER.

    My broken clavicle, scapula and ribs weren't all that painful most of the time. They kept asking me my pain level when I was i the hospital and I'd say "well, as long as I'm just laying here, maybe just a 1-3 (depending)". The worst pain was sitting up in bed and sneezing, those were painful but pretty brief. Most of the pain was more dull achy type. I've had back issues that were way more painful, those sharp, stabbing pains.

    Some ugly injuries up in here....damn.

    I took a nasty spill on the road a month or so ago at a decent rate of speed. My right knee and lower leg took the brunt, shredding my tights to pieces. Yeah, road rash but it's pretty damn painful from day 2 onward. Having the bandages stick to the wound was not fun.

    At least I got a new helmet out of the deal.

    Fu....

    My son got a similar injury at a skatepark a few yrs back. Poor kid; the worst part was getting the painkiller needle injections into the wound site.

    Iíve broken my ribs and nose but the kidney stones were by far the worst pain for me. When it hit I was a city court judge and was on the bench doing video arraignments from the jail. I very nearly passed out trying to power through it.

    I've had 2 major stones, both hit about 10 pm at night. The first one was about halfway through a 65 mile backpack trip. I initially thought it was appendicitis but it was on my left side. Having the backpack waist belt cranked tight, and walking, actually made it hurt less. Later my doc told me that they hurt the worst when they're not moving through your system, and walking helps move them along. I never saw that stone pass; I think it came out on the last day of the hike.

    The second one was far worse. I went into work that morning and realized pretty quickly I was screwed. I barely was able to cancel a business trip for later that week before I lay down and passed out on my office floor. A few days later I felt good enough to go back into work, and passed the stone into the urinal -- it actually made a healthy *toink* against the porcelain.

    Almost 3 months on, the slight out of focus takes away some of the angry look it has in real life. Unfortunately when it was stitched the edge of the cuts rolled in so the surface didn't "bond". Taking the stitches out was like unbuttoning a shirt. Took another 3 - 4 weeks of re-dressing every 3 days with steri-strips to get it to finally close over, hence the reason it is as wide as it is.
