What hurts worse than childbirth? - Page 6

post #101 of 209
A bone marrow biopsy and irritable bowel syndrome ( seriously I have had lower belly cramps that truly rivaled the final stages of my labor pains, and all I got for my trouble was diarrhea). Dry sockets hurt pretty bad too, probably not quite as bad as labor but pretty darn close.

A miscarriage. Holding a baby small enough that she could be a small plastic doll and never getting the chance to know her. To mother her. To only guess what could have been...

a ruptured ovarian cyst! major pain (especially when the dang hospital people let you bleed internally for almost 5 days!!!)

Tattoo removal-

I hate to admit that I have already been dumb enough to get a tattoo and hate it so much as to have it removed but since this relates to your post--

Laser tattoo removal is way worse than childbirth IMO.

Really bad bedside manners!

I'm one of those rare mamas that have painless labors. Last two babies, no pain. Sure it was a little uncomfortable when I shot them out of the birth canal. 2 min with 10.5 baby and 4 min. with my 9.8 baby. As in stump my toe hurt, not that bad. So I can list ALL kinds of things that hurt worse than child birth.

The OB who dx me with prolapse said I looked like I was 60 yr old lady, ahem, down there. MW was there and I said my dh and I wanted to try for one more in 4 yrs. She said she wouldn't take on a client that looked like she was 60 in her vagina! REALLY MEAN SH!T. What a way to kill a babymoon: I was 8wks pp too! OB was trying to sign me up for a designer vagina.

It still hurts.:

Me either. Before that the stupid amnio I had was the worst thing I had ever felt. I sent the doctor clear across the room with a scream and a kick...and they had told me most women feel hardly a thing. :

I would really like to know what was wrong with me, because even my regular examinations with the obgyn were agony, and I've never had that hurt before or since. :

Having your foot crushed so that not one bone is left unbroken.

Foot getting gangrenous.

Standing up for the first time since the wreck and having blood rush to a foot that your body hasn't figured out is no longer there.

That time I caught my big-toe on the bottom of DS's rocking cow while pushing him around like a jet ski... and the nail ripped off.
OMFG, it hurt so bad. At 18mo, DS was worried enough to go get Daddy who was worried enough to just take DS in the other room and let me bite the carpet.

Also- Withdrawl headaches from becoming addicted to a pain medication after surgery.

nothing. including my worst puking migraines.

PID that sent me to the ground unable to move or speak didn't even come close.

I would think there's alot of things that could hurt worse than birth. I'm not going in to details here, but if you've ever watched a horror film, I'm thinking something like that.

The thing about the pain of birth is that it's so completely different. There's a BABY that's being BORN. I honestly can't say whether my migraines or my experience of birth were "more painful" - I was, at points, begging for it to stop and saying I couldn't survive with birth, just as I've been known to do for migraines. But I deal with both without pain meds (usually, for the migraines - I sometimes cave if someone offers me something strong that won't make me puke). But if I never get another migraine in my life, it will be too friggin' soon. And I want to experience that birth again. And again. And again and again and again. 'Cause it was just. that. amazing! The pain was just a small part of it. (I mean that birth, by the way - don't want that many kids! )

Anyway. Just had to throw that in there. For the original question - I can't really answer. But there are a hundred million things I'd choose experiencing childbirth over having to feel them. (Most of the things mentioned in this thread, for starters!)

Anything back related is excrutiatingly more painful than childbirth.
I'm there with you, right now unfortunately

Breaking my leg hurt WAY worse.

charley horses (muscle cramps in leg, where ever), appendicitis, migranes, my back being out, cramps from rotavirus, influenza (the headaches, the yucky, hot feeling where even your skin hurts), food poisoning

LOTS of stuff hurts worse than labor. I don't even qualify labor as 'hurting' or 'pain'- it is intense!, and so AMAZING!

just remembered, the muscle spasms after I dislocated my knee were also much worse than labor and birth. I was 9 years old and I can still remember the pain.

For me, my kidney stones hurt WAY worse than my 3 labors. Even with the fact I got hyperstimulated by the Pit during my first one which caused some horrible pain. Thankfully, that was very short-lived and it wasn't bad enough that I was throwing up.

With my kidney stones, I couldn't stand up straight. Thankfully my DH was an EMT by then and could drive like a bat outta hell!! I was throwing up and dry heaving the whole 45 min drive to the hospital. By the time we got into the ER, I was so dehydrated that it took them another 45 mins to get my IV started. I was begging for something to stop the pain, which is something I NEVER once did during labor.

My sis has Crohn's. That's worse.

As far as myself? Stepping on a thumbtack and it going right through the ball of my foot into my bone; then having to pull it out with pliers while I had a stuffed unicorn in my mouth.

Oh, and this wicked huge hemorrhoid I have right now. WAY more painful.

Oh, and a twice-broken, once-dislocated jaw eating a chewy substance.

And the constant backaches I have now from the epidural I got with my first, that are now getting so bad they make me nauseated.




All in all, though, birth was a totally different experience. Hurt, yes, but it was almost a good, fun, exciting hurt. Like a tattoo, or a good workout. The first thing I said after my natural birth? "That was *effing* AWESOME!"

Peeing after my c section was horrific!! I think they nicked my bladder or something because no one else I have asked about it said it hurt to pee at all.

It was horrible and I would hold it cuz it hurt so bad but then it hurt worse to pee more. Hell for about 3 days, longer than both my vbacs put together.
