Skin graft (on finger)
Made the mistake of not removing a ring at a construction site and ended up "de-gloving" the middle finger on my left hand- that means ripping the skin completely off of it. Because of the nature of the injury they could only use about 50% of the original skin and had to take a little off of my leg. Long story short, it was a stinky, oozy, 3 month process to have it completely heal- but was back to work in 2 weeks. Don't know your deal, but I moved and exercized the finger normally along with all of the others (much to my Doc's displeasure) and now 5 years later it's at 97% movement/feeling when they told be the best I could expect it to be was 80%. Follow the docs orders or not- your body will tell you if you are doing something wrong. Kept the area clean during the healing process with soap and water with a daily wipe of Betadine. Tell the doc to shove the antibiotics up his ass- I ended up not taking them after 3 weeks cuz they were doing more harm than good.
