    my fairly spectacular forearm rash for my last smash got a cheerful male nurse scrubbing it clean

    that hurt but it was for the best, you're not a man if you can't hack it but someone else doing it is best

    it healed lovely, dressing changed once I think

    Scars are all part of the fun...... like a 6 inch patch on my butt with no hair at all....road rashed away.......
     
  4. I've got road rash scars on each knee, my right elbow and shoulder, nearly had some more today thanks to a patch of ice I didn't see:ohmy: Fortunately some good bike handling on my part avoided any calamity:biggrin:

    I've got calcification going on under a roadrash scar on my hip :blush: but have to wait a bit longer before the docs will do anything :wacko: its bloody irritating, and can be quite painful.
