The local pain shots hurt, and while the process itself wasn't painful, the finishing of it was CREEPY FEELING. And then a dull ache as the lung expanded back to its proper size.<quoted text>
Ewww...did it hurt? Do you get to go home today?
I've had some pretty bad pain this week... but it was always temporary (like... 15 minutes) and not THAT bad (i can use my imagination). It also seems sometimes to be anxiety-driven, rather than "pain caused by something done here."
