Fall Leads to Surgery and Pressure Ulcer

Fall Leads to Surgery and Pressure Ulcer

Today’s edition of Best Gore Members Rock is brought to you by Best Gore member, sandm4eternity, who not only suffered a nasty fall which required metal rods being screw to her tibia, but also developed a rather nasty pressure sore on her heel as a result of her incapacitation. In her own words:

Here are some photos from March when I fell on ice getting out of my vehicle. I snapped my tibia and fibula and ended up having surgery to place a rod in my tibia. I ended up with a pressure ulcer on my heel from the dr placing the cast too tight. My heel took eight months to heal and I didn’t walk for almost six months. Figured I’d share this little bit of gore I have.

Thanks a bunch for sharing. Our resident mouse knows your pain as well.

  1. That looks really painful! I can’t believe all that happened from slipping on ice. I do that all the time but I’m gonna be more careful after seeing this. I hope you’re all healed up now. Thanks for the pictures 🙂

      1. Your weight has nothing to do with whether or not you slip on ice. Some people are clumsier than others no matter how big or small they are. If I’m wearing the wrong type of shoes and trying to walk on ice, I’m probably going to slip.

    1. I’m New here from Africa I know you guys and gals don’t like Niggers but I’m like a Mexican I just wanna let you all know that people like me exist I dont
      give a Fuck but I do I Love you all and also I’m a Paramedic I seen some fucked up shit been visiting this site for 2 yeArs nOW and have the balls to speak lol welcome to my mind lol let’s begin Fellow gorians

      1. Most members judge on character not color. A lot of bad character is generally synonymous with people of color. Hence the reason people are skeptics and untrusting from the start. Disliking someone soley on skin tone is just plain silly. There are plenty of reputable members here from all walks of life (blacks included). Of course being here for 2 years you know how it works. 😉 Anyhow welcome.

    1. It’s true that knowledge is everything……
      Urotherapy …..fix all these sick as fuck ” diseases ”
      Instead millions of sheeps follow the doctors advice
      And take more medicines….to make them sicker…..
      Crazy world…!!!!!.

    1. I would like to compliment Obs on his fine photo captioning skills. That there gallery, is one full of perfectly titled pics that explain exactly what needs to be explained. Well done Obs – we love you ( no homo)…….

    1. Indeed @stomper. She probably complained that her heel was hurting and they said you’ll be in pain for awhile, not even bothering to check on it. Kind of like my mother-in-law. She had complaints for a year and all the doc wanted to do was stick a scope up her ass. Turns out she had a huge hernia with a partial bowel obstruction from a previous surgery screw up they did. All it took was a CT scan to easily diagnose. Well, I could go on about medical screw ups I’ve seen – but I’ll leave it at best wishes and thank you for the pics @sandm4eternity!

      1. Could have been very serious for your mother in law, as @karmen said, not good at all.

        Had something similar when I dislocated my patella the first time. They put a full length pot / plaster cast on my leg, which caused severe muscle wastage, for which I then required extensive physio for to bring it back to the same strength and size as my left leg. Not life threatening obviously, but strenuous and time consuming, which could and should have been avoided.
        I suppose these stories of medical profession cock ups highlight the fallibility of humans, or rather, in some cases, pure negligence.

  2. Ouch indeed, this however is a fractured ankle. If you had broken the tibia in a more proximal (closer to the knee) locale, you’d have had a full tibial rod. Knee to ankle titanium rod driven in with a mallet. Spatter, gore, and as a radiographer, I get $45 an hour to witness and image that shit. I also see a lot of spine surgery, epic! Cheers

  3. Oh my! This is worse than watching those two monkeys getting stabbed, getting their eyes poked out and then having their monkey dicks cut off.

    It’s even worse then watching that black dot of a female monkey in the sand getting pelted with rocks, thrown by those orangutans.

    These are the most sickening pictures that i’ve seen on BestGore so far. I’m not going to be able to eat vulvas for a while. That’s how traumatized I am.

  4. Fuck 6 months?!…. That’s a long time not being able to walk, work do normal routine. But to some people that musta been heaven to stay home on couch all day,poppin pills’, TV, turning to blubber,and chilling in a smorgasbord of your own funk…your armpits,ass,snatch wreaking to high hell.
