No. Wrap it up in some moss and take a fistful of Codine. You'll be right as rain.

bleeding for 11hrs with no stopping? Yeah, you should go to the hospital about 10 hours ago. Seriously, not good. What happened?

Yes, before you pass out from loss of blood.

Nah.... just wait a little longer. I mean, if it's really gushing, then eventually you'll run out of blood, your heart will stop and therefore, so will the bleeding.

Of course you should go... if a cut or injury doesn't stop bleeding for 11 hours, you need to see the doc to find out why.

@ pup's suggestions.

Seriously, if its too deep to stop bleeding in the last 11 hours, it needs professional medical attention. Get ye to a Doc.

This is interesting - a medical professional asking medical advice on the foo forum.

Apply direct pressure, elevate leg, seek further medical attention. Straight out of the Scout Handbook.

Get better. You've got to think of the others who care about you - or at least KT's little sister.

Big wuss. I'd have waited 24 hours before asking a bunch of strangers what I should do. Just drink half a bottle of scotch and sew it up yourself.

I hate to state the obvious but aren't you a nurse, or training to be..?
Put your leg up, apply pressure, if it still bleeds then you either got a vein thats not clotting or your into muscle. In any case if your reading this, stop and go to the hospital......
