Honey Boo Boo's Dad

I Ain't Losin' Ma Damn Leg

9/20/2012 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0919-honey-boo-boo-splashHoney Boo Boo's daddy Sugar Bear required emergency surgery to treat a nasty infection in a leg wound he suffered during a freak ATV accident last week -- but doctors will NOT have to amputate ... this according to Mama June.

TMZ broke the story ... Sugar Bear sustained the leg injury while mud boggin' -- which is a fancy term for redneck off-roading. He was pictured on crutches following the injury ... but the wound got so infected that he needed to be hospitalized.

Mama June tells TMZ ... doctors decided to perform a debridement -- a surgical procedure to remove infected tissue from the body so it can heal properly.

Mama June, Honey Boo Boo and the rest of the family visited Sugar Bear after the procedure and said he is in good spirits and craving some peanut butter crackers.

0919-honey-boo-boo-splash-crutchesJune tells TMZ ... doctors expect Sugar Bear to make a full recovery ... and he should be clear to return to work in 4 weeks.

There was talk that Sugar Bear's infection was so bad, docs would have to remove parts of the leg via amputation ... but June says the rumors are "100 percent not true."

Git well soon.

Wounds don't heal without vitamin C and minerals. You need fresh fruits and vegetables for that. The closest that they are coming to that is ketchup on the sketti and the reconstituted giant bottle of lemon juice in the ultra sweet lemonade. He needs to lie with the leg in the sun and rinse it with a salt solution. If you keep running to the hospital for these things, they will cut the leg off one day, then he won't be able to work or ride bikes any more. They want to make money at the hospital, not cure things for the sake of it.

He probably didn't take time to keep his wounds clean and you can get a nasty infection if you don't.

What were they saving the doctor's visit money for?The Boo Boos have a bit of money now from the show, so couldn't papa just have gone to a doctor when he received the wound, or at least when it started to look bad, (sooner than he did) - like normal people? Jeez.
