Hurts just thinking about it. Anyway, they grafted flesh and skin from his stomach to make the finger more or less normal again. The trouble was that Neal had a tendency toward being over weight and the stomach flesh grafted to his finger would gain weight, too, getting fat. Every few years after that he had to have surgery again to shave down that finger. Weird. So I guess the moral of this story is to limit the beers or tacos or something else you get a paunchy spot on yer leg. Heal up, Bud.
this would be great to remember ,it would ease anxiety wondering what the swelling was and possibly save you from chemo theropy and cutting from panic medical sales pitch
