If Chris Weidman snapped his leg like that in 1821, what kind of treatment would he receive? Would this type of injury lead to amputation?
Matthew Serra wouldn’t try hard to save his leg
Truth lol. Used to hear those gunshots from Belmont from time to time.
He would’ve been shot in the head
He would have walked it off unlike us soft cunts.
With good health care, yes. But definitely a chance it came through skin and he’d get stung with some bad infection if not.
The master (surgeon) shall visit the patient every day to inspect the fracture and if necessary to loosen or tighten the strings. He will apply ointment of poplar buds from the knee to the foot if swelling occurs. A rag soaked in vinegar will cool the leg from the foot to the knee, many will benefit from this.* (Leersum 1912:162)
He’d be put down like a dog in the street.
Yup that’s what I was thinking. We’re all lucky to be alive during this time period
amputation and then fed to tigers
God watching leg breaks never gets old
I was thinking if it happened to us alone in the woods or the like. We’d likely die from not being able to get back, then from thirst/cold/infection etc.
