Charlie, I think I am going to regret asking this, but still, we're all friends here, I hope, and my curiosity and amazement is getting the better of me. I know you have apologised "for doubting [my] existence", but I can't understand where this comes from. How can a request for help for my bashed finger be seen as provocative?!

No, my finger isn't broken. It hurts less now, but is still very swollen. The left side of the nail, which was black, has now faded, but the black has moved to cover the white bottom part (I don't know the proper name for this part of the nail); and the puncture hole has now turned black. Playing any instrument is out of the question at the mo. In response to a previous post, this was not my front door but a heavy fire door at work, which I hastily tried to shut in a sudden downpour when it rained into the room. In future, the room can bloody flood! The tricky thing was that the usual bar across a fire door wasn't there, but just a tiny metal latch, difficult to get hold of, and far to one side of the door, hence my accident. My doors at home have actual handles, and outside doors need keys. Much less hazardous, I think you'll agree.

There ARE automatic openers available for the clums--for people who have difficulties with doors. The opener is much like a TV remote. Of course, Ian won't be able to click it with THAT finger for a while, but his thumb would work efficiently I suspect.

Spent 2 hours in A&E last night. Was told that, because the loose metal on the door frame had already punctured my nail, they didn't need to to relieve pressure from the blood building up under the nail. WHEW.

Ian-

Welcome back and my apologies for doubting your existence.

My favorite nail story was watching one turn a ghastly green yellow, then black, after some nitric acid dripped on it. Don't try this at home. I still aced the lab exam.

And after shedding the nail, it grew back!

OOT is the way Canadians pronounce "out" - according to Americans. It's not troo, though.

Wow! Thanks all for so many responses. Yes, it DID hurt and it still does. I spoke to NHS Direct who told me it will almost certainly fall off and there's nothing I can do to stop it but that a new one will grow (as many of you have said, thanks). My worry was that my father lost a toe nail with a hammer and the nail never did grow back. I haven't seen a doc but now will, as so many think I should - and you're right, of course.

(I am using my second finger to type for those who wonder. This finger probably gets more use than the average person - whoever that is - because I am a lutenist.)

In those days 11:00 for me was OOT

What is OOT?

I used to work for a small-town newspaper that still used "hot type" (metal slugs with raised, reversed letter that were inked and pressed onto paper to transfer the ink) for some side jobs. They used a table saw to cut the slugs to size. One of my co-workers was missing part of his thumb because he'd sent it through the table saw along with a slug.

When I was in art school I was required to take a woodworking-arts class. One of my classmates did the same thing -- cut his finger with the table saw -- fortunately not all the way through. But that poor boy was in some serious pain before he finally was able to stand up and go to the hospital.

When I had a live-in boyfriend, he came home from the local bar one night after I was asleep, woke me up and said I had to drive him to the hospital. He had stopped at a neighbor's on the way home and the neighbor insisted that he pet the guy's German Shepherd, who was not in the mood for affection and bit my boyfriend's hand. Before I could get dressed, my boyfriend had sunk to the floor in a half-faint from the pain (and probably from the alcohol he'd consumed!). A couple of fingers were affected, and part of a tendon had to be removed from one of them. No fun!

A bosun I once knew had his finger on the coaming of a hatch to the wheelhouse of the tug....he forgot to dog the hatch open and the wind came and shut that hatch....right on his thumb....it popped the tip right off...

Recently my dad was working on a machine part on a lathe and the part came loose and smashed his middle finger to bits...he lost some bone but they were able to save the majority of it....

then a week later I was pissed and filling my brother's zippo lighter....this was at a mate's party...and well I spilled some fliud on my fingers cause I couldn't keep my hands still...and when I lit the lighter to burn off the excess fuel...my hand caught afire...I had second degree burns on my two middle fingers....I told my dad the next day he goes yep...he did the same thing once....and he was sober.

Had a friend who responded to an industrial accident. Fellow had got his finger under about 200 pounds of steel. The steel had dropped onto his finger. His finger tip burst beneath the weight. The guy passed out from pain. Hell, I'd a passed out looking at it.

When I was 16 I caught my finger in a car door - or rather, the car door caught my finger. Talk about hurt.

It was late at night- in those days 11:00 for me was OOT - so it was with great reluctance that I tapped on my parents' bedroom door and whispered to my mother what I had done.

She said, Soak it in ice water.

So I did, and within the hour it hurt so bad I couldn't stand it.

I went back to the bedroom door and with a groan my mother got up.

She held a thin needle in the flame of a kitchen match and took me and my finger under the ceiling light. She inserted the needle under my nail - and I said, I think I'm going to be sick.

She took a look at me and said, You are about to faint. Sit down.

So I did and she slid the needle under the nail. When it pierced the bubble, blood gushed out copiously. It instantly felt better and was only sore from then on.

I lost the nail though.

Well figuring that the hammer strikes the toe and then the pain sensation is transmitted to the brain and then you react, by my calculations you are at least 746 feet tall.

I did this just a couple of months ago -
and I didn't lose the nail... but it looked like
I was wearing purple nail polish on that finger until
quite recently.

As for treatment - ice and elevation made a difference
for me. What with the puncture, I do hope you took
it to a DR, just to make sure that you keep infection off.
A friend did his fingers in a garage door around the same time
and he did crush the bones - so an xray is a good idea.
I got lucky.

And yes, it hurt like hell. Hurting that made me feel
sick to my stomach - so I sympathize and hope that all
will be better before too long.

Some comfort food and a warm bath (keeping injured diget
out of the water) wouldn't hurt. You deserve a little papmering.
