To build your own guillotine you've gotta be pretty handy.

His hand hurt so bad he lopped it, off in hopes of convincing the Drs. to implant a spinal stimulator to ease the pain in it, deafeted his own purpose if you think about it.
Guess its a good thing he didn't suffer from migraines.

Good morn' SLY. There was an article about a lad who requested amputation of his leg when it would not heal. I will find the link....
Here tis
BERKLEY, CA – Imagine living with leg pain so intense that it makes you want to cut it off.

An 11-year-old boy in Berkley, California actually wants just that; to have one of his legs amputated.

Has anyone explained the phenomena of 'phantom pain' to this man and the boy with(out) the leg?

In a way, it's good news for him that he was successful and didn't die. Not so much for the rest of us. Now it'll be DIY leaflets at hospitals. Cut down the waiting lists... literally, and surgery costs

Tis the season for chopping off your own hand... next month, feet?

He'd need a 12 ga. with OO buckshot, you know, to bust them suckers up so he can pass 'em.

Phantom Pain....I have experienced this even today. My left thumb used to itch and I would scratch it if I knew where it was. Today it felt like a bee stung my thumb. I still haven't found it yet.
