This thread has surely gone downhill to just about
nothing in record time! We started out with thrilling
tales of falls, trips and stumbles resulting in multiple
broken bones, illustrated by photos of surgical scars,
surgeons actually cutting flesh, and of course that
shuddery illustration of a knee pierced by a plastic
pipe with more tubing than I care to remember. Now
we're down to an occasional "I've got an icky cold!
Boo hoo!"

We can do better than this! Come on, everyone,
give us your stories of gross medical woes that bore
your friends and neighbors but will enthrall Tiki
Centralites the way the earlier posts on this thread did.

PS--I do sympathize with anyone who has a bad head
cold. Will post my method of wiping such out in two
or three hours, as soon as I look up a few details.

The problem is not that there aren't enough grisly injuries, but that they aren't grisly Tiki injuries. I get some excellent burns and cuts at work, but getting scalded by a balsamic vinegar reduction or slashed while trimming artichokes simply doesn't make, in a manner of speaking, the cut. As soon as I stab myself with a rumaki skewer, count on some vivid photo-journalism.

Kraken is right!

I did not say anything because I am working on being a kinder,Gentler ATP (What are you looking at!)
Yet I was saving this thread for something special, I am a wood worker & that leads to occasional
Power tool, Nail Gun & Table Saw atrocities.

The next time I shoot a 2 inch nail threw my hand, I wanted to proudly post the gory pictures here
amongst a small & worthy band of mutilated fellow TCers.

We must have higher standards when it comes to horrific injuries!

Ok guys you asked for it. The knee and thumb surgery I had this past year were nothing compared to my broken arm being fixed with a metal plate.







I worked at this hospital for 34 years so I know all the doctors and staff well enough to get great photos. I had three falls and three surgeries and two broken bones all since last May. I put Dan's cold on here so he wouldn't feel left out. I hope I'm done here. I don't like being the Rock Star of injuries! Cheers, Wendy

The aftermath of Basal Cell Carcinoma, the bane of the desert dweller. Not an especially flattering picture of me



Don't forget the sunscreen!

Yikes...that is close to the eye Mike...good thing you had it checked out. Scars add character!!!

I have an appointment with my PCP this week and hope I can get a referral to dermatology...I got some suspicious leopard spots. Oh the price we pay for our romping in the sun as youngsters.
