    I don't actually have a massive, bleeding head wound.

    Im just wondering why various people seek medical advice in these forums when the obvious answer is "go to the doctor!"?

    Lots of us are in the USA. We can't afford to see a doctor. And even if we could, the next available opening is two weeks from next Thursday.

    lol I dont know where you are in the US but when I have medical issues that are along the lines of "Massive bleeding head wound" I tend to get help right away. Maybe try actually going to the doctor?

    I have a feeling that people make up these situations in their head then talk about them as if they are actually facts.

    You just need a bottle of whiskey, a needle and some good thread, and a Curad. Also, since it's your own head, it is probably best to stand in front of a mirror while you do the stitching.

    After two weeks in traction due to a construction accident, a surgeon came into my room and told me he wanted to operate. I hobbled out of the hospital and started interviewing people who were not doctors as to the success of their similar operations.

    That lead me to a series of about five or six doctors until I could find one who actually seemed to know what he was talking about. With his help, I was able to come back to 98% health without surgery, with only remnant symptoms and a missing reflex today.

    Had I just listened to the first doctor, or even the first few, they'd have fused my spine or whatever the hell primitive crap they loved to charge for back in the 80s and I"d probably be in constant pain today.

    The more sources of information, the merrier.

    People are more likely to believe something coming from a familiar source, then from a physician.

    And also, like antijock said, the more opinions, the merrier.

    Because they think Dr. Oz reads RJ posts and dispenses medical advice to deserving gay people.
