Woman May Lose Fingers After Passing Out In The Snow

An Australian woman was in despair after she passed out drunk in freezing Canadian snow, only to wake up and find over half of her fingers terribly blistered.

She was out drinking with her friends last December when she went outside to smoke a cigarette. She didn't have her jacket or gloves on when she headed outside. The woman said, “It was 5.45am when I was found. At 6.30 a nurse told me that best case scenario I keep my fingers... worst case I lose my hands.”

In the few days that followed, the woman was treated at a local hospital as staff constantly stopped by to see her “sweet blisters.” The doctor told her that her fingers would swell and blister before they could be popped.

The woman went on to say “The pain and pressure at this point was verging on unbearable. I was taking opiates the whole time... frostbite recovery is pretty well known for its pain. My next visit with Doc Freezin he was wearing an apron and a face mask with a plastic shield over his head. With my hand over a metal tray, he cut my blisters with a scalpel. Pus went everywhere ... I think I even got the hospital curtains.”

The woman was left with raw skin. The doctors are still concerned about her right middle fingertip and left pinky.
