The Stitches Window
What is with the window to get stitches? I cut myself yesterday, tried taping and glue but it failed, went to get a stitch (small cut), and they told me I waited to long and taped it up AGAIN.
I know, I am fairly dumb. But I don't understand the window deal. You REALLY can't get stitches after 8 hours. What about soldiers, adventerous people, and people without quick access to medical care. It sounds like a legal issue.
And looking back, I know I have gotten stitches well past the window. I had a cut, got it stitched, waited 2 weeks, got them removed, the cut opened again, and I got restitched. So what's up
