I was amazed at how miserable an experience this was, but last night I had to go to the hospital to get a cyst that abcessed in my left armpit lanced and drained. I mean, I laid there before it started and thought to myself, it's just a needle through the skin ... can't be THAT bad ... Well, she numbed the skin in the area with lynecaine (sp?), and then came the needle. My stomach completely tipped from the pain and I was sweating bullets in a few seconds. I thought I was going to pass out, but thankfully it went without incident. Yea, I know, gross experience to share ... but the PAIN ... am I just a wuss or does anyone else know what I mean here.
