Up to you. Just please keep an eye on things like vision changes, or memory
stuff. If you notice something, check it out. And yes, you will have a big
scar without stitches. YOu could put ice on it and take some sedative,
and have someone stitch it up- I did my own thumb years ago in the wild.
Quite the scar though. And usually, if it's anything with the head- it is
imperative.- Just a good rule of thumb-
