Say a character manages to slice the external body open and guts are threatening to spill, the character sliced then falls back to feign their death, but instead tries to keep their organs closed from spilling and stitch their opening shut.
Would this be, in theory, the best way to quickly get back into a fight? Let's assume in the circumstance death is unavoidable, and the only goal is to distract an enemy for as long as possible, and said enemy thinks they can just leave them to die.
I see questions all over about people using ice and fire to seal wounds in worlds of magic, but let's say they're using the magic to hold or even make a needle and thread. Of course I know stitches risks opening with too much stress, but CAN it work better than the fire and ice method for a field medication, with proper stitching?
(For context to give a better answer, this character will absolutely die if it buys the people he protects more time to escape.)
