+MMarshall Posted May 17, 2006 Share Posted May 17, 2006 I found uncountable references to "tetanus," but always in responses, never as the starting topic. Out caching today, stepped to close to a post that had barbed wire around it, got a little poke in my leg. "Ouch," said I. Wasn't bleeding, didn't think anything of it. Get home over 10 hours later, take my pants off, there's a red hole in my leg! Doesn't hurt, even if I poke it, don't think it's more than 1/8" deep. So, I don't need a doctor, do I? Can I survive if I'm infected? I've already looked up "tetanus" on wikipedia, and obviously I'll head to the ER if my muscles feel stiff, especially my jaw!! But, obviously I'm hoping you guys will tell me I'll live, I don't plan on seeing a doc. Thanks, all! Mike O- Quote Link to comment
