Well back from the Dr.'s and OUCH!  Angry He numbed it up and cut above the nail and squeezed out the pus....then jammed a wire under the nail and kept pushing on the nail to drain it....let me tell you...that
[curd] hurt! Dr. has a little concern about how much pus was built up under the nail so he cultured it and sent it to the lab for test....won't get the results back until Friday. He said he guesses this is going to put a damper on my crabbin....come on Doc....you kiddin me...that's why they make rubber gloves  Grin Grin will be out Friday with the wife and daughter....they will be the official pullers for the day. Seriously though I did get some antibiotics to take and was told to keep an eye for red streak, chills, fever, etc.

I did get some pics before and once I get home tonite I will unwrap the finger and get a shot or two  Cheesy

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes!  Smiley

Glad to hear you're back in action, RLC!

My girlfriend thinks I'm nuts, but I say the best fix for most any ailment like yours is to "squeeze it."  Sounds like thats just what the Dr. did!  I bet the wire part maybe your knuckles white, ouch!

One with with the antibiotics... they might make you more sensitive to light... your eyes and skin.  Not sure how thick your skin is,  but dont get burnt out there this Friday.

Good luck, hope it heals up well. Smiley

this type of vibrio is not all that dangerous unless you have something worng with your immune system already. it is very rare to die from this.  Vibrio vulificus is common in oysters, and id bet everyone here has been exposed, and we are all still alive. it is common in the bay in the summer.  Vibrio cholera, a closely related species, has several important differences that meke it dangerous (cholera toxin- which gives you SEVERE $h!+s)  the strian found in the bay does not make this toxin and is opportunistic, meaning it only gets you if your immune system isnt working right.  the infection you have is likely from another type of bacteria.  The pus is mostly made up of your own cells that came to attack the infection, so if they take a sample and test it, it could come back negative, yet you are still infected.  dont worry though.  the antibiotics will take care of it and if it were going to kill you, you would be dead by now

RedLionCrabber.....
So glad you had your injury and infection   taken care of......... it must have been very painful  Cry owwwwwch!!!! So sorry this happened to you Sad
I am an RN and my advise is no matter how much you think " oh I don't need to finish this perscription, I feel better and my finger is better" DON'T stop taking the antibiotics, finish the script, all of it.........
Sorry couldn't help myself.....  Embarassed just want you to be ok  Smiley

The thing that bothers me is that we eat these "filters" all the time. There are web sites dedicated to it even  Wink I guess our stomaches are strong enough to kill most of the stuff but what is being soaked into our bodies? Hmmm

I agree with Daisycup, but I'm also a hypocrit... I almost never finish the antibiotics. 2 reasons:  1)Save some for the next time you get sick thus avoiding the Dr, and saving time for crabbing, and 2) I've developed a less trusting attitude towards doctors the older I get.  No real reason, I just think some of them are too caught up in making $.

Somehow I got pink eye (yes, the preferred disease of 5 year olds) a few years ago and had to go to the Dr.  I said "i have pink eye, need the drops."  Well, after 3 hours at the Dr., 18 forms, a physical exam, a research of my family tree, a driving test, a psyhcological exam, and a root canal, I got the [dang] drops. 

I got pink eye last year (again), and as luck would have it, had some drops left over, and avoided another trip to the doctor's office.  Why do I keep getting pink eye?

But no doubt antibiotics are a good thing, and they'll fix you up.
