hey buddy, it might be worth re bookin prmc for another day. you don't want to go down the with the possibilty your injury causing you problems and failing prmc and then having to wait up 2 6 months to do it all again!

Don't be such a fanny, just stick a plaster over the wound while your there. If it is above the elbow then it shouldn't stop you doing seal crawl.

Stitches for what?

If it was an injury like i did to my thumb (where i cut the side of it off from nail to hand) then yea.. rebook.

But if its just a surface cut not requiring surgery and can have them off in a week, then it's not going to affect it more than likely.

Yeah, I'd just go for it, mate. Quite likely you'll have to put up with a lot more than a few stitches in the future, *text deleted*.

Speak to your AFCO asap and get their advice.

Worst case when arriving at CTCRM for a PRMC with an injury is that you get sent straight back home. I cant imagine it would be a problem, especially as the stitches will be out by then, but speak to your AFCO to get their confirmation.
