Hi, My friend was punched in the face over 24


My friend was punched in the face over 24 hours ago (more like 30 hrs ago).

The cut is on the eyebrow and he has not had it seen by a professional. I have only just seen it and it has scabbed over, probably scabbed over 24 hours ago. The cut looks quite deep and the area is swollen but otherwise looks clean.

Would it still be possible to get stitches or glue if needed?

Hi, I have a friend who had a over full and too heavy trash can fall on him a few months ago. it knocked him to down and pinned him to the ground-part of the trash can was on his left thigh and his penis. I felt pain in his penis and thought it had been severed. he was able to wiggle himself free of the trash can and check his genitals. he was bruised but ok. he noticed now a dent in the left side of his penis and when he gets an erection it curves to the left he has no pain and been checked out by a dr. they say don t worry about it. we were wondering what causes the dent-I think its damage to the soft tissue. is there any way of getting the dent out?

Hi, 10 days back, I got punched on my face, right exactly over my right side eye. It got swallen immediatly as soon as I got the punch. The swelling all over right side of my face was so bad that my eyes was almost closed for three days. Now that the swelling is gone but it has left blue/purple scar around the eyes and red inside the eye, which the doc has said is blood clot. But my eye bone or cheek bone is still swollen and stiff and feels like extra growth of bone. My doc has said that all these would go with time as there is no fracture but I am scared whether my face bone would coem back to normal or not?

My boyfriend got a punch in the face at the weekend when out with friends. He fell back and hit his head. Since Monday he has been dizzy and went to the doctor on Wed who said it was vertigo (my boyfriend had vertigo a couple of years ago just on the odd occasion). the medication is not working as he is still dizzy/tired/drowsy. Could this be the result of the punch and fall on Sat night or do you think it is vertigo and the tablets will take a while to work?
