Right ok, this is going to sound weird. . This morning a thought came to me. I don't know where the blade is. I have a history of inserting things in to my wounds. And I don't know if I dreamt it last night or is my brain playing tricks on me but I am not sure if there is something in the wound. They didn't stitch the wound in A and E just left it open and was closed with steri-strips on the ward. Even though it did require stitches but was left too long for them to do anything about it. Basically i need some advice. I don't want to go to A and E and say I may have dreamed it it may be real but I don't know as that will just make me look even madder than I already am. I was contemplating calling the nurse I have seen asking him to look at my A and E notes but does that go beyond his call of duty? Or can I just leave it? How long does it take before infection sets in, and would it cause an infection. It was a clean blade...but obs not sterile! So I don't know what to do really. I wont be able to get to A and E until tomorrow Wednesday evening now either which is another thing even if I did believe there to be something there!
