Today, I had to get stitches on my foot and was then forced to wear a plastic bag on my foot while showering. The plastic bag made me slip in the shower and had to go back and get stitches in my forehead. FML

A good trick I did when I broke my toe was wear a larger sock over the bag. It kept the bag on, sealed at the top, but also made it so I didn't slip!

It's safer for OP obviously. But depending on the shower it wouldnt of been so bad. like mine has a detachable shower head, so I'd of washed my hair with that while my foot hung over.

I once had a double-ER visit myself. When I was in elementary school, I went swimming in the pool outside. I was under water, and hit my head on the side of the pool coming up for air. I split my chin open and needed 6 stitches. Less than 24 hours later, I fell off a rock at my best friends house and broke my nose. They questioned me to make sure my parents weren't beating me XD

I also split my chin once!
when I was about 6, we had these widow type things between two rooms in my house and I was standing in one of them and fell. I had to get stitches.
one of my favorite stories to tell!! but that's the only time I had an ER visit... thank G-d!!

My friend split her chin open twice. First time she crashed her bike, don't remember the second. You can still the the scar and the imprint of each individual stitch. :(

35- ...when someone whacked him on the head with a 2x4 for making fun of them ;)

Damn showers, those things are death traps, I swear.
You don't even know how many concussions I've gotten from falling in the shower. And that's without any plastic...

Ninjadinos, do not attempt shower sex, ever. It's difficult enough for most people to pull off safely, but I fear for your life in that situation.
Although, it would make for an interesting FML.
No, wait. I stand by my first advice. Your health is top priority. Don't do it.
