hahahahahahahahahahaha

your forming a pattern. I said the last bite/s I did not go to the hospital. The first ones I did and like you, was of no value. The first a WDB, swelled up to my shoulder, that was it, nothing systematic, no other symptoms, no pain, they administered three vials of HS, which is useless but even to give you a Allergic reaction and nothing for the bite.

The second a Blacktail Rattlesnake(doing a Steve Irwin), I was with an Ozzie paramedic, he demanded I go to the hospital. I said ok, but I am not letting them do anything and I didn't. Swelling to mid forearm and no pain.

With the above experience, I now monitor the bites and that includes having a friend stay by in case something occurs. We set rules as to how fast the swelling spreads and if any systematic symptoms occur. If the symptoms exceed those rules, off to the hospital we go. So far, swelling to mid forearm and no pain. No pain at all. I am weird I tell you.

In total, 11 rattlesnake bites, 8 dry. which included some real funny stories, like my med student friend chasing me around with a giant buck knife. Cheers
