All right, I'm going to make this post simple and quick. Basically, I have a current notion on a wound for one of my characters. Originally it was a gunshot wound to the spleen, but naturally it changed over time, due to the lack of medical attention, location, need for livability, etc. I've been looking online at different posts and websites and I've been getting mixed results, some saying the gunshot anywhere in the main base of the body is fatal. Others say if it misses vital organs, the character should be fine. I need to know if it is possible if these things can happen while being shot anywhere CLOSE to the spleen for convincing purposes: 1. The character recovers within a day or two, after supposedly being shot somewhere critical. Another naive character that witnessed the wound finds out that it wasn't as bad as it seemed, and that the wounded character lied to him/her. 2. The character only needs to patch themselves up. This means no medical attention. Yes I know this risks infection and that is perfectly fine. 3. The character is able to move around the next day (with pain though, but he/she can stand) 4. The character is trained military, so they know that they will be okay. 5. The character loses 2 pints of blood (One is fine too, if this is not possible.) 6. It is a 9mm bullet. 7. The character makes A LOT of movement after he/she gets shot. So much to the point that he/she carries someone and he/she also gets in a fight. This is difficult here folks, because this hints that he is okay. But where on the body could someone be able to do that after being shot? Now i know this is pushing it, but this is the best I can get so far in the location and period I have written. If I need a change in the bullet's location, you can advise anywhere but the limbs. Doctors and surgeons feel free to respond, as you have the experience. Thanks so much! PS: It would also be nice to know the abrasion wound of the location you recommend. I'm no medical expert and that is why I'm asking for your help!
