Default Dangit.

Cut my arm throwing away a broken toilet. I wrapped a bag around it to catch crap and didn't see the corner that ended up doing it.

Be careful. That cut looks close to tendons and stuff like that.

Get well soon. Thinking of getting lacerated like that makes me cringe.

How many days off? Do you get compensated during that time?

Thanks everyone, I should be back up and plumbing sooner than later. It surprisingly did not hurt at all until I decided to go back to work and try to finish what I was doing and the lidocane they used for the stitches wore off. Went downhill from there pain wise, it doesn't hurt until I move my hand or fingers then it's just feels sore. Same arm is going to be sore tomorrow from the tetanus shot, happens to me every time I've gotten one.

Planning on taking tomorrow off, going to see how it feels before I decide to take monday off. I'm not going to get compensated for time I take off, but I also don't have to worry about the ER bill.

I could see the actual tendon moving back and forth while the Dr was checking it out and having me make a fist which was pretty neat. I was just glad when it happened that I didn't hit an artery or that tendon, it barely even bled when it happened.

Oh that's right I hadn't thought of the hospital bill. What would happen if you didn't have insurance or one man shop? Is this like a 10K bill?

I doubt it would be that much, it'll probably be around $1000 to $1500, which is just a wild guess. I haven't been to the ER in 10 yrs, and that visit was somewhat similar but just my finger and it was a little under $1000.

the first time I remember getting a tetanus shot in my arm they said it would hurt, I got it in my right arm and sid that didnt hurt so much, the next day it felt like a golf ball under my skin and couldnt move my arm without lotsa pain....every tetanus shot after that was in the butt and it wasnt bad there....
take the time needed to heal up and dont push it even if you think you can do work...
