I can't say that I've tried this, but imagine how painful (and dumb) the following would be:

 

Stick a toothpick under your big toenail and kick a wall as hard as you can...

Having a chest drain removed following lung removal... I apparently have a relatively high pain threshold and had been pretty sweet with pain following the op and had barely touched the morphine so the bright spark nurse suggested I'd probably be ok without any additional pain relief despite other nurses telling me differently. I took his word. I'm not a violent man but it was the closest I've ever come to throwing a punch.

 

And the pain is made worse by the fact you can't breathe until they've stitched you up. Seriously not cool - the longest, most painful 20 odd seconds of my life, it seemed an eternity!

 

 

 

So - if you ever have cause to need a chest drain, ALWAYS take all the pain relief before they remove it, no matter how you've been and who says what. You have been warned lol

At the tender age of 16, the day of a big exam at school, and for no reason, a testicle torsion.(sp)

 

The main blood vein to one of the boys twists, cutting off the blood supply. Pain was so bad for 2 hours. Luckily the pain caused me to vomit, which somehow put everything back to rights. However, I still had the op to stitch em in place, so it should not happen again. If it does, I have been given 2 hours to get it rectified, or its down to meat and one vege only.
