    Robb to leave for medical reasons?

    We all know by now that Robb gets stung by a stingray. Is it possible that he will have to leave the show for medical reasons? I did a quick google search on stingrays & came up with the following info...

    "Although it is desirable to clean the wound with alcohol or hexachlorophene, it is more important to wrap the affected area in hot towels or place it in hot water as soon as possible."

    "Proceed to professional medical treatment as soon as possible. Without proper equipment and medications wounds cannot be cleaned thoroughly in the field and they may contain parts of the broken barb, sheath, and bacteria."


    For the full story, check out this link.

    We can't really be sure how severe Robb's injury is or whether the tribe will know what to do. If the show's medics have to take over, it seems like Robb would have to be disqualified. Being from a landlocked state, I really have no experience with rays. Any thoughts here?

    Though I don't really care for him, I certainly don't want to see him go for that reason. I do hope he's OK...

    My uncle has been stung by stingrays twice, and after the initial shock (where he passed out both times, and he's almost as big as me), it wasn't so bad. I doubt that he goes. He'll be limping for a few days, but they can sit him out of a challenge, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    I hope that's the case because I don't want to see anyone leave like that due to an injury.

    I agree with Wolf...I want to see Robb leave, but not like this...

    From Robb's Survivor Application:

    LIST 3 POTENTIAL LUXURY ITEMS AND WHY THEY WOULD BE USEFUL:
    1. Skateboard. Because I could beat stingrays to death with it.
    2. Snowboard. Because I could beat stingrays to death with it.
    3. Dude, I can't count that high, like, I've only got two hands.

    Who knew he could have been so prophetic?
