Nine months has passed since I cut off my left thumb tip.
Eight months has passed since amputation.
Finger tip injuries normally distort finger and nailbed shape. Here’s a way to restore them.
Please welcome amputee musician.
Fyodor Shestiperov (b. 1953), a Russian accordion and guitar player, missing four fingers on his right hand.
Ingrown toe nail is a serious problem, with a threat of inflammation, edema and infection. It should be treated at once.
Twelve weeks have passed since my thumb lost its tip.
As you can see, the removed fingernail is slowly growing back.
Whenever I buy anything, I try to protect its surface as long as possible. I buy screen shields, keyboard covers and silicone for my gadgets. I walk around new furniture and home appliances very carefully and use them only by handle.
Because for me, even a minor surface damage moves anything from brand new to not new anymore.
Apart from female circumcision, young girls suffer another mutilation: breast ironing.
The procedure includes stick beating up 10-12 y.o. daughters breasts and burning them with heated stones. And the poor child is tortured by her own mother.
The amputation and following surgeries left some scars on my body. Injuries during our lives also leave a mark. Sometimes even a minor wound turns into in nasty scar for the rest of our days.
Why do we get scars in the first place?
My new girlfriend doesn’t have a finger, should I still date her?
My new boyfriend has half a digit missing, should I run away?
Such palmistry appear in online Q&As with surprising regularity.
