Had to share this story
I saw this on our Fox2 station last night. A man lost 3 finger tips below his nailbed in an accident. He was looking under his car hood and the belt snap them off. Someone was able to save the parts but the fingers were too damaged to attach. He said he really didn't feel the pain too much, just was in shock! A doctor at St. Louis University Hospital said there was another option where he could try to use the medical powder (pig bladder) to help the fingers grow back. He had to apply it several times for weeks or months. Guess what? They grew back, including the fingernails and feeling in the fingers. He can do everything he use to with his hand before the injury. Medical miracles! They are looking at using this for wounded war victims. You can google this or go to FOX2NOW.COM to see for yourself.
