Had a toenail removed the other day and it continues to throb and ache, it's not the worst thing I've had done to me medically, that involves a really really long tube, but I hate having no choice but standing and walking around on it, so wanted to share my insignificant yet disturbingly prevalent pain. What would be the most painful thing that has ever happened to you? Any kind of operations or such that anyone would like to share? Share the pain and heal, even if it's already healed long ago... The most painful thing in general would be the shattering of the bones in my hand when I was goalie for soccer/football and had the ball in my hand and a giant flailing douche kicked the ball THROUGH my hand, and yeah, I swore a whole lot.
