Have you ever cut a big chunk of a finger off and did you go get stitches?

mark s
When I was growing up we were poor so yep big time on more than one occasion I always healed up OK I have been cut to the bone before w/ no stitches.

Chuck G
yes. the doctor reminded me of edna mode but she did a good job with the stitches.


i scraped my finger to the white meat and it was a big chunk of meat that came off and it was on the freezer door at work i just put bandages on it and it healed in about a week or two

Taylor G
um no i can honestly say that i have not recently cut a big chunk of a finger off and got stitches

Well- kinda... I made the MISTAKE of holding a stack of Frozen Hamburger Patties- while my girlfriend tried to cut them apart... The knife "slipped"- & I was on my way to the "E.R."! :( The stitches in my finger weren't HALF as dramatic- as my girlfriends Reaction was!!! Needless to say, I no longer get asked if I need any "help" separating anything with a knife! :)

Well pretty much if you cut a "chunk" of flesh OFF your finger they will not sew the "chunk" back on. They will instead let the flesh regenerate and heal back. The process of flesh growing back is called granulation.

However if you do cut a "chunk" of flesh off you do need to go see a doctor so it does not get infected.

I was in the mafia for a while and yes...but those guys deserved it (see they owed us money) and getting it stitches for them just sends a mixed message.
