My better half did an incredibly silly thing at the w/end… while slicing a lemon she glanced over at the TV and, well, if you read the title you know what happened next.
She managed to chop off the tip of her thumb. After the initial panic and first-aid, we found the bit of thumb on the blade of the knife. Apologies if this is grossing anybody out.
Anyway, it was only 2 or 3 millimeters of thumb lost and my question is - will it grow back? I’m sure it’ll heal up OK - as injuries go it’s pretty minor. The question is : Is she going to have a flat-ended thumb for the rest of her life? Or will it grow back into the nice normal rounded shape?
