Skin wound healing process

Tips by Donald K. Burleson

December 2010

Awhile back I had a flesh wound that required over two feet of stitches!  What I did not count on was the massive swelling!  I went golfing a few days after being sewn-up, and I popped out about four inches, leaving a gaping hole in me, revealing my abdominal wall!  Cool!

Here we see the stitches glistening in the wound, pulled-up as tight as banjo strings:

It’s not the stitches that pop, it's the meat. The stitching line is a heavy 60 pound test fishing line, and the stitches held fine. Here, I had to have the swelling fluids removed with a giant horse needle.

Here is a video of the whole process for your enjoyment. Janet picked the background music herself and she did a great job! (WARNING: DO NOT view this video while eating).
