Title: 9 years ago I was an IDIOT. WARNING : GRAPHIC PHOTO CONTENT !**
Post by: Hando on July 23, 2011, 04:03:11 pm
EDIT : today marks 9 years from the day I posted this.

If you are a newbie - read this and learn from my mistakes.

END EDIT.



My first boss used to say that a pocket knife is never really yours until you have cut yourself with it. If I had to apply that logic to bikes then my F650GS is now officially mine.

This morning I finally managed to get all the paperwork sorted out to get Jemima (my F650GS) registered on my name. As I got home I decided to clean the chain and lube it before going for a ride with a friend.

IDIOT WARNING !!!!!

So to clean the chain , I started the bike and put it in gear . Yes I know (now) that this was the start of a very bad (and painfull) plan.

I had a piece of cloth that I was using to wipe the chain in my left hand. And then, quicker than you can think is possible, the rear sprocket grabbed the cloth and next thing I remember is hearing the bone in my left thumb crunch as the sprocket and chain tore the first 1cm of my thumb off. That crunching sound is going to haunt my dreams for a while still.

I got up , switched off the iginition and called my landlord to take me to hospital. Not having a medical aid means I was taken to Provincial hospital here in Uitenhage. I must commend the staff at Provincial for doing as well as they can with the resources they have. The place is clean , the staff are friendly and competent and they helped me as well as, I think, I could have been helped at a private Hospital.

Anyway - I have a pic of my thumb before they started fixing me, but it is very graphic and I am not sure what the mod's feeling will be about me posting it - will wait to hear.

Eitherway - Please let this serve as a warning to fellow dogs and newbies like me. Do not clean or lube your chain with your bike in gear and idling. Accidents happen extremely quickly.

I will not be able to ride my bike for a while after this and my thumb is EXTREMELY sore. I am typing this with my right hand only.

Please, please, please learn from one IDIOT and do not become another one. I could have lost my hand!!!!!!

IF the MODS ok it - I will post the other pic as well.
EDIT : Posted the other pic after consultation with a MOD.

PLEASE NOTE - it is Graphic content.

Afraid the bike is going to stand for a while. Hand too sore to operate clutch. Thumb too big to fit in glove. And too bloody cold to ride without gloves.

Had to open the whole mess up to clean it this morning. It is now extra sore again. I was really stupid. Pity hindsight is 20/20.

I feel for you I know what it feels like as I cut the tip of my thumb off in a table saw. It is going to be very sensative at first it does get less over a long while but you never really know the use of a whole thumb untill it is gone. My thumb is the first bit to get cold and the last to warm up. I still get the feeling of shock when I think about it and it happened in 93. Good luck I hope that it heals well and the pain is not too great.
On the lighter side no one will play cards with you as you are not playing with a full hand.

Ja-nee kyk, Hando... ek weet eintlik nie wat om te se nie. As een ou na jou thread kyk en nie 'n ernstige les daaruit leer nie, dan verdien hy/sy nie tien vingers nie.

Soos Jacko tereg se, upgarde na 'n shaft, dan score jy sommer 'n flikker knoppie wat jy one time met die regter hand kan gooi.

My high school physics teacher always kept his chalk in one hand and only worked with the other on experiments since he claimed the human brain isn't very good at multi tasking and he minimises the chances for shite to happen by working single handed.

The same applies to working on yourt chain:
You turn the wheel with one hand and spray chain lube or clean with the other.
Also never work on your bike while wheels are turning. The inertia of a turning wheel can easily break fingers if you manage to insert them into the right place.

I had to see my fair share of self mutilations by stupidity in my life. There is a reason for two hand safety switches, belt drive & flywheel covers and yes even side stand switches ;D
Bikes maybe should have centre stand cutout switches too for some hero to bypass it or to use a paddock stand to rid himself of some digits of his fingers ::)

Funniest ever and definitely taking the cake was a colleague working on a boot gutter clamp of a welding robot for the BMW E36:
Sticks his pegs into one of the clamps and holds onto one of the actuator rods where the pneumatic cylinders were supposed to go later. Clamping his finger he didn't realise it's actually himself causing the pain since rod and clamp had a number of levers & shafts between them reversing & translating the motion.
Thinking one of us is hurting him he starts moaning & whining at us who all step back from the machine laughing. Ended fortunately only in embarrassment  & silly jokes and a nice bruise.


Or the neighbour who got his finger into the paper feed of his printing press.
He managed to hit the emergency stop but he was caught. We heard his shouts for help and quickly broke into his printing shop :D

"Go over there and turn the flywheel! It will move the paper feed back!"

"Which way must I turn? Clockwise or counterclockwise?"

"I don't know, just try!
Ai ai ai! other way"

Heal well and all please learn the lesson.

Hi boeta. My beste raad op die stadium is....   sluk daai pynpille gereeld.  Hou die pyn onderduk.  As hy eers so erg begin klop kos dit meestal 'n dubbeldosis om dit weer draaglik te kry.  As jy het, sluk hulle maar elke 4 ure of soos voorgeskryf deur die kwak.

Sal aanhou loer hoe dit genees.  Sterkte

Dude, all I can say is 'good luck'. Your whole world has now changed.
My hand got stuck between a lister motor and two fan belts. Was in theatre 4 times to repair the damage (fix bone, re-attach sinew and muscle, 2x skin grafts), the last time I came out of theatre I had 87 stitches in my hand. Dr actually wanted to amputate middle finger because of the damage (my Dad just said No.).

Simple things like brushing your teeth (If you are right handed, good luck doing that with you left hand). Putting in contact lenses with one hand, wiping.. Like I said, your world changes....

If I may offer one piece of advise, start with physio as soon as you are able.  The skingrafts on my hand was still dying (going black) when the doctor sent me to the physio, it bleeds, it's painfull as hell, but you heal faster, and the increased bloodflow aids healing.. (as well as the "joint" does not stiffen up)..

Again, Best Wishes!!!

I am lucky that I do not have such extensive damage. In fact - I am very lucky to only have a slightly buggered thumb. Could have been so much worse.

But I must say - this thumb is SORE , Very sore , Today.

Hando, moenie te sleg voel nie. Die kettingmonster het my ook beet gehad in 2001.
Was besig om 'n ketting voerder in my hoenderhok te stel, toe start die ding outomaties.
Ek was te laat, het my pinkie gegryp en my hand deurgetrek.
My middelvinger se punt het aan 'n velletjie gehang en die ander 2 vingers se punte was heeltemal af. Spesialis kon darm my middelvinger red.

So, welkom by die IDOITCLUB, ek is ook 'n lid, sonder 'n lit of 2.

Sterkte, hoop jy het nie te veel pyn nie. :thumleft:

Loaded my Gas Gas on to the bakkie at Daytona and whoops there goes my thumbnail in the sprocket.

Soos in completely ripped out, did not even bleed only very white, no pain.
Zooted off to Wilgers, injection and cleaned it up.

That evening pappie, I developed a mini heart in my right hand thumb that beated like ther was no tomorrow.
It was FAAAARRRKKKING sore for the next 4 weeks.

I have an idea what it feels like Hando although not as bad as yours.
Hold on buddy, Myprodol and Ibulen is your friend!   :mwink:

Looks a lot better then the 1st pics but I still get cold shivers. About 10 years ago I chopped my left thumb with an axe while making a braai. Just a split second of not concentrating and accidents happen. Luckily my thumb healed and can still play playstation. I still have the axe and have a whole lot more respect for it now. Hope you heal well. :thumleft:

Nee Dusty , Ek weet nie.

Ek reken dit gaan 'n tydjie neem. As jy  mooi kyk lyk dit of die nael bed oorgebly het - so as ek gelukkig is groei ek dalk n nael terug . Ek hoop so , want ek vermoed dit gaan darem n deel van die meer gevoelige dele bedek.

Maar ons sal maar moet sien.
Op die stadium is ek maar net te bly dat ek darem nog n deel van die voorste lid oor het en dat hulle nie die res van my duim moes amputeer nie.

Hando as soon as it has properly healed you should set up a video camera and do a proper re-run, duplicating your previous action, so that we all can see exactly what not to do. Seeing that that section of your thumb is already missing it cannot get caught in the chain again, so it is quite safe for you to do and we can all learn from your video.  :peepwall:

New worker in a wine cellar drowned in one of those huge stainless steel storage tanks and it was investigated by Dept of Labour. The inspector questioned the other staff regarding safety equipment being in place, ladder to get out etc, but was assured everything was in place, so he asked why this guy was then unable to get out. No, said one of the others, he was able to get out as he climbed out to take a piss three times before he drowned.

Today is the 9 year anniversary of when I cut my thumb off with my bikes chain.

For al the newbies out there - Do not be an Idiot like I was.

Done that once too whilst gripping the planer with left hand to guide it. Was used to my manual one.

It's good. About 90% strength and motion, so I'm happy with that. And no feeling at all along the scar line, which helps a lot when I rip it open on jobs  :peepwall:  :imaposer:
