What hurts worse than childbirth? - Page 10

post #181 of 209
Chronic anal fissure.

Being electrocuted with a hand crank generator for extra credit in 10th grade science class.

Other than that nothing else I've been through so far has come close. The hemorrhoids were no problem, ha ha! Although the tear wasn't much fun and I didn't get it fixed.

A ductal yeast infection....that radiating, burning, stabbing pain hurt so much worse than anything during my unmedicated labor. That being said, the most painful part of that experience was getting 2 stitches afterwards.

The stomach flu. 15 hours of puking so hard my muscles were sore. I even threw up on my tippie toes, the force of it wouldn't let me keep my feet on the ground. Then there were the burst blood vessels. My nose streamed blood and my eyelids were black from pooled blood under the skin. And I peed my pants every time I threw up. Just a complete loss of control and hostile pain takeover.

I truly thought I was going to have to go to the ER.

15 hours of that was worse than labor and I had a hard, long labor.

TMJ pain. Basically nerve pain in your head/behind the ear, that feels like a knife is being stabbed into your head and twisted while the bone crushes into a million little pieces.

Oh man, do I know the tippie-toe dry heave throw up, and the peeing uncontrollably...yikes.

I haven't read the whole thread, but I had a friend tell me just today that getting her wisdom teeth out hurt far worse than any of her 4 c-sections, or her gallbladder surgery.

Interesting thread...I can't resist putting in my two cents. I had an appendectomy when I was a kid and the anesthesia make me dry heave for two days after. That was bad. Torn open blisters from the allergic reaction to the surgical tape after my c/s hurt more than the incision itself. What hurt more than eight hours of useless pitocin torture? When I asked the doc who performed the c/s if I would be able to have a vaginal birth next time, and she basically said she didn't think so. That hurt the most.

Yup, ear drum bursting is HIGH on my list too.

Sinus infections.. feel like being smashed in the face with a sledgehammer.

Pregnancy is pretty painful for me.. but I wouldn't put it on the list. Don't wanna tempt the gods not to allow it again

This thread makes me cringe everytime I read it.

cesarean!

Getting my nose pierced was worse than pitocin induced labor and birth with no pain meds.

LOL I thought mine was abnormaly painful too! But no where near as painful as labor!

Getting my full back tattoo hurt so much more than giving birth. Granted, it's a big tattoo and I had a really easy labor, but still.
For me, it really helped having that pain-free break between contractions.

The first two times I peed, it hurt worse than crowning. The third time, I got smart and peed in the bathtub. Much better.

nipple piercing! I almost passed out from the pain.

I just went through having several cavities filled and also having a wisdom tooth removed - I concentrated on the births of my kids (happy thoughts!) to get me through it all. I would never had a cavity filled or a tooth pulled without anesthesia, but I've had 4 med-free births and would love to do it again!

Old school laser printer open to fix jam..... ya know where half the machine pops up to expose the inner-workings.... had my finger way down in the corner and my co-worker slammed it shut. OWWWWWWWWWW... i'm quite certain i crushed a nerve under my fingernail...ALMOST had to leave work for the day. i cried. hard.

Having the impatient doctor reach INTO your uterus to remove the placenta.

OWWWW!!!!! That was immediately after the birth and hurt worse than the whole thing.

Hey, that's a really good idea! I was just gonna use a peri bottle, but this sounds even more comfortable. Thanks!

A complete bowel obstruction. For 3 days before you get a diagnosis.
