    48 hours of induced labor, 32 of them unmedicated, only to wind up with a c-section. I had taken prenatal yoga and was all set in my mind for natural childbirth. In the end, medication was my only hope. It was a very difficult few days.

    God bless you! that's about all I can say....LOL

     

    Personally, I didn't think having my tonsils removed was all that painful. I think it was more aggravating.

    I do hear, though, that the bone marrow (being the donor) is very painful.

    God bless,

    Okay, I will acknowledge right up front that I am given to understand that nothing holds a candle to childbirth.

    That said, the worst for me was hernia surgery before it was done laproscopically. I was in bed for a week afterwards with the worst pain I've ever known. Had another on the other side a year later and it was as advertised, the next day I was definitely sore but I could walk around the block. When I asked the doc why the discrepancy he said it was a matter of which nerves were cut.

     Mine would be the implants in my eyes.  I had lens implants "installed" (LOL)at 16 due to having cataracts removed when I was 5 years old.  I was out of it for days!  The bad thing is that I may need to have them removed due to having uvitic glaucoma and severe bandkeratopathy on both eyes.

    Mine would be the pain of the 2nd degree burns strategically placed on either side of my underarm, so aS to stick together; whenever I moved, it hurt.  However, I was able to get off pain meds (other than ibuprofin) 2 days after leaving the hospital, so I must seem like I'm complaining too much.  Yours in Him, Deb

     Gallbladder surgury. I had a stone stuck in a duct so was in surgury for 6 hours. What was suppose to be a one day thing ended up being in the hospital for a week and a long recovery. Babs

    two bouts of hard labour followed by c-sections.     lucky I haven't had any other medical problems that require any painfull problems. The only thing is my sinustis and twinges in my hands from getting older so I am doing alright.

    I aso had kidney stones before. They passed on naturally. However, while they were still in my body, they caused a great deal of agony. I almost passed out at some points.

    Put me right beside babs!  My gall bladder surgery was 20 years ago and I still have after effects from it!  Like babs, my stone was caught in the duct.  Mine was a spongy stone and was long so it wouldn't go back in but was too big to pass.  Only a 3 hour surgery but I was out for over 12 hours.  The dr was sitting by my bed when I finally woke up he was so worried!  I was out in 2 days but managed to pull the stitches and get an infection the 3rd day home from the hospital.  I still get a little pocket of infection from time to time where a drain tube was.  And since the scar is diagonal across my abdomen (they had to remove my appendix at the same time), those muscle just don't heal back correctly and I have some nerve damage also.  As in a "dead spot" around my navel.
