When u have a leg cut do you always feel it right away?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Krishna Narayanan
Specializes in Plastic Surgery
Sends on the depth: When there is a cut there is usually sensory perception of pain and there is associated withdrawal of the limb involved from the injury source. The pain can be greater if the depth of the wound is more.
