Moving a cast iron tub to a new location in my house today. The boys had it about 2 foot in the air trying to get it over some stuff. I reached under to move some crap out the way when they let it go, right on my pinky and ring finger! OUCH!

The worst part was I could not stop. I had the water shut off to move the water heater and air tank also. man, hard to work with 1 hand and 2 fingers!

I dont think its broke because I can still move it, just very little and hurts big time. especially when one of those Irwin 3 tip bits stuck in the floor and spun the drill!

It may just be dislocated at worst.

You need to have that x-ray'd tomm. morning. Man that sucks. Best wishes and a speedy recovery. I would have two hands broken.......I would break the other hand on whoever dropped the tub on me.,,,,,,,,,,UPDATE>>>I'm down 50 bucks so far tonight!

Thats why many plumbers tubs are rusted, faucets leak etc... I am going to save this to show my wife next time she ask me to do a home plumbing project. Just too risky. I think fishing is much much safer.

As my dad always said to me

"It's gonna feel a lot better when it stops hurting"
