Also, is there any location on the torso in which someone can be shot right through without damaging any internal organs? (I'm probably right in thinking that it definitely won't happen if you're using large scale weaponry or dum-dums, but I'm talking a 'simple' pistol with standard bullets)
Say someone has just been slashed across the leg by a sickle. The blade has all matter of things on it - blood (of animals - all reptiles, if it makes any difference), dirt, probably worse things than that but there's no way of knowing. The victim will have to make do with only basic out-of-a-first-aid-kit medical treatment for another two days - she will spend most of those two days in combat situations in a tropical climate.
What will happen to her leg, and what sorts of diseases is she likely to get (and can they be treated?)?
